Librarian Annie Spence knows what it’s like to love a book so much she has to write it a love letter. She also knows what it’s like for a break-up letter to be in order.

Her letters to books fill the pages of her own new book Dear Fahrenheit 451: Love and Heartbreak in the Stacks.

Listen above to learn about the book, and to hear Spence read some of her letters. You’ll get an usual and intimate peak into a librarian’s reality.
