Join us for An Evening with Susan Orlean

Benefiting the Dallas Public Library system

and honoring Freda Gail Stern


Friends of the Dallas Public Library are pleased to announce that Susan Orlean, journalist and best-selling author of The Orchid Thief, the basis of the film Adaptation, and Rin Tin Tin: The Life and The Legend, will be our speaker for the 2014 fall benefit on Thursday, November 20, 2014 at 6:30 pm. Her forthcoming book, The Library Book, shares the timely story of the Los Angeles Public Library's literal rise from the ashes of a fire in 1986.  We are proud to honor Freda Gail Stern, one of the Dallas Public Library's biggest champions, for her many contributions to the Library system and the literacy community.
