The secret lives of booksellers and librarians : true stories of the magic of reading

Patterson, James, 1947-2024
Books
Featuring original interviews with booksellers and librarians, James Patterson presents a new non-fiction title that highlights the magic of books. To be a bookseller or librarian . . . You have to play detective. Be a treasure hunter. A matchmaker. A brilliant listener. A person who creates a kind of magic by pulling a book from a shelf, handing it to someone and saying, 'You've got to read this. You're going to love it'. In this love letter to the heroes of literacy, James Patterson uncovers true stories from booksellers and librarians. Prepare to enter a world where you can feed your curiosities, discover new voices, and find whatever you need. Meet the smart and talented people who live between the shelves - and who can't wait to help you find your next great read.
