Friday Reads: The Lions of Fifth Avenue by Fiona Davis


What a treat to spend time exploring the inner workings of the New York Public Library with novelist Fiona Davis as a guide! THE LIONS OF FIFTH AVENUE puts us into the minds of Laura, wife of  the superintendent of the library in 1913, and her granddaughter Sadie,  curator of a special exhibit at the library some 60 years later. Part mystery and part family saga, the story takes us deep inside the inner workings of one of the most famous libraries in the world, with missing rare books at the heart of the mystery. This is a book for those who love  history, intrigue, and books — and above all, spending time in a library!
