New Letters on the Air: American Sanctuaries

The American Library Association designates September as Library Card Sign-up Month for students, so we've created this audio anthology of poets, novelists, and memoirists, who talk about how they found inspiration and refuge in the libraries of their youth.

Kansas City, MO – Judith Ortiz Cofer, Junot Diaz, Esmeralda Santiago, E.L. Doctorow, Anne Lamott and others tell stories about the importance of libraries to their development as writers and to our culture as a whole.

Listen here until September 30, 2009.
