Video Fridays: The Fragile History of Libraries

Courtesy of Basic Books

In our current issue, Nick Basbanes talks with historians Andrew Pettegree and Arthur Der Weduwen about their latest book, The Library: A Fragile History. I’ve been enjoying the audiobook edition over the past week, which reminded me to look up the virtual book talk featuring Basbanes, Pettegree, and Der Weduwen, hosted by the Boston Athenaeum last December.
