What was your favorite book as a child? Has it stayed important to you as you reread it? Do you travel with a copy of your favorite novel? The library vlog Book Love celebrates reading and how books connect us. Clips of interviews with colleagues, students, faculty and visiting speakers about their favorite books will be a weekly presence on the libraries’ social media channels. You may learn about new books and authors or simply enjoy hearing that your favorite book is loved by others for other reasons. Originally begun as an exhibition, the project has become an engaging way to connect readers across campus and beyond.
This week, Lila Quintero Weaver, author of the graphic memoir Darkroom (2013), discusses books she loves. See the complete interview on the Libraries’ YouTube channel. If you’d like to share your favorite books, call Mary Anne Caton to set up an interview.
