There is a new documentary about one of my favorite subjects – librarians in film. Hollywood Librarian is a documentary that debuted during Banned Books week featuring depictions of librarians in films like Desk Set and Party Girl.
Interspersed with the film clips, real librarians talk about a variety of issues including freedom of speech, intellectual freedom,the explosion of technology and the survival of civilization. There is a free screening in Seattle next week too. I will be there!
