Surprising Items Stolen From Libraries: Today In Books

Surprising Items Stolen From Libraries

We hear library theft and assume book, maybe map or important documents. But here’s a fun list (for curious readers, not for the libraries) that shows surprising things stolen from libraries like skeletons, swords, and even a presidential rocking chair. I’d like to propose that maybe the skeleton grabbed his favorite weapon and seat and peaced out–someone write this book!

Edwidge Danticat For The Double-Win

Edwidge Danticat won the Story Prize in 2005 for The Dew Breaker and now, fifteen years later, she’s once again taking home the Story Prize. This time for her story collection, Everything Inside. Double congrats!

Judy Blume Adaptation

Judy Blume’s coming-of-age novel Summer Sisters will be coming to television. The 1998 novel will be adapted into a limited series at Hulu with Liz Tigelaar (Little Fires Everywhere adaptation) set to write, executive produce, and be the showrunner–“Sources say she sent the author a fan letter 20 years ago in which she asked to adapt it for TV.”
