Roz Warren, ZestNow’s favorite (and world’s funniest) librarian, has written a new book. It’s published on April 16, which is National Library Day. As Roz says, ” What an amazing coincidence!”
She points out that there are eight million stories at your local public library – and not all of them are in the books! Join humorist Roz Warren for a fascinating behind-the-scenes look at library life. What really goes on behind the circulation desk? And in the stacks? Roz, who writes for everyone from the New York Times to the Funny Times, tells all! What’s the single most stolen item in any public library? What’s the strangest bookmark ever left in a library book? What’s the lamest excuse ever given for not returning a DVD on time? And what does your favorite librarian REALLY think of you? In twenty entertaining essays, you’ll meet librarians fighting crime, partying with porn stars, coping with impossible patrons, locating hard-to-find books and saving the world. The most closely guarded library secrets will be revealed. You‘ll never look at your local public library the same way again!
Roz Warren, “the world’s funniest librarian,” writes for the New York Times, the Funny Times, the Christian Science Monitor, the Jewish Forward, the Huffington Post and ZestNow.com. She has been featured on the Today Show (Twice!). Roz is the editor of the ground-breaking Women’s Glib humor collections, including titles like “The Best Contemporary Women’s Humor,” “Men Are From Detroit, Women Are From Paris” and “When Cats Talk Back.” “Our Bodies, Our Shelves” is her thirteenth humor book. Years ago, Roz left the practice of law to take a job at her local public library, “because I was tired of making so damn much money.” She has no regrets.
