Poet-Librarian Anthology News

I have an essay coming out in this new anthology of writing by poet-librarians: https://www.amazon.com/Poet-Librarians-Library-Babel-Meditations-Librarianship/dp/1634000285/ref=la_B005HW950C_1_7?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1523029403&sr=1-7 – in my essay, I discuss the way library workers are portrayed in Edith Wharton’s novella Summer, Philip Larkin’s novel A Girl in Winter, the movie Desk Set, and the tv show Buffy the Vampire Slayer.  In the course of this discussion, I look at the clash between traditional stereotypes of what a library is and what librarians do, and the way library work and libraries are re-shaping themselves in response to the vast changes in how information is communicated in the digital age.
