Revolting Librarians Redux: Radical Librarians Speak Out Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

"Revolting librarians aren?t defined by what they are, they are defined by what they do. In fact, it?s not even what they do, but how they do it." Katia Roberto and Jessamyn West, in the Preface

This compilation of witty, insightful, and readable writings on the various aspects of alternative librarianship edited by two outspoken library professionals is a sequel to Revolting Librarians, which was published in 1972. The contributors, including Alison Bechdel, Sanford Berman, and Utne Reader librarian Chris Dodge, cover topics that range from library education and librarianship as a profession to the more political and spiritual aspects of librarianship. The contributions include critiques of library and information science programs, firsthand accounts of work experiences, and original fiction, poetry and art. Ten of the original librarians who wrote essays for Revolting Librarians back in 1972 reflect upon what they wrote thirty years ago and the turns that their lives and careers have taken since.

Book News Annotation:
