This week’s You Are What You Read is in honor of Louise Parker Berry. As I am sure you are all aware, Louise is retiring after 35 years of being our fearless leader, tireless advocate, and all around cheerleader. You could not hope to work under a better woman. She has always allowed us to speak in our own voices without censure and that’s a really remarkable thing. Not many library directors would let me refer to Paul Newman as a hottie, or allow the weekly playlist to make an appearance. It is because of her that Darien Library is such a wonderful place and true gift not only to you all, but to the people who get to work here. So thanks Louise! We will miss you fiercely. This week we have pain, nostalgia, a confession, Paris, a disappearance, Manhattan and Berlin. And of course, we can’t forget The Playlist.
Let us begin!
