"I just want to come at libraries from a different direction. I'm a novelist, and obviously my mind filled itself up and contorted itself the right way during early years in back stacks of libraries. But now libraries do something new and special for me. They put my books in people's hands when otherwise those people wouldn't see them. A bottom-line-focused writer might say, "Well rats, every checkout means one fewer purchases," but a writer who just plain old loves to be heard sees it differently. Libraries amplify my voice."
What does your library mean to you?
