By

We are heading to spring which means, we start profiling our HOPress-Shorehouse Books authors. Since April 7-13th is National Library Week, we thought we would highlight our library humorist Roz Warren   and her two books Our Bodies, Our Shelves and Just Another Day at Your Local Public Library  

Bio:

Roz Warren, “the world’s funniest librarian,” writes for The New York Times, The Funny Times, The Christian Science Monitor, The Jewish Forward and The Huffington Post. And she‘s 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 BackOur 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.

Just Another Day at Your Local Public Library

Library humorist Roz Warren, author of the popular Our Bodies, Our Shelves: A Collection of Library Humor, is back with a new book about the joys and challenges of library life, Just Another Day at Your Local Library: An Insider’s Tales of Library Life. Roz, whose work has appeared everywhere from The Funny Times to The New York Times, will make you smile, laugh out loud and maybe even groan with disbelief as she shares her real-life stories about what goes on behind the scenes at your local public library.

What really happens behind the circulation desk? And in the stacks? And what does your favorite librarian REALLY think of you? Roz, who has been featured on both Morning Edition and The Today Show, tells all! What’s the nuttiest excuse ever given for returning a book late? The most shocking sight captured by a library security camera? The funniest location a misplaced DVD has been found? What simple thing can you do to make a librarian’s day? In twenty-six entertaining essays, you’ll meet librarians looking for love, coping with challenging patrons, dreaming impossible dreams, finding amazing surprises in the book drop and saving lives. The most closely guarded library secrets will be revealed. You’ll never look at your local public library the same away again!
