Librarian as Novel Character

Mindy Klasky writes "There's been a lot of discussion on the law librarian listservs lately about the public image of librarians, whether we should call ourselves librarians, etc. I am pleased to announce that my most recent novel — in stores today! — features a librarian heroine.

GIRL'S GUIDE TO WITCHCRAFT (ISBN 0-373-89607-7; published under my maiden name, Mindy Klasky), is the story of Jane Madison, a special librarian (in all meanings of the word!) who discovers that she's a witch. You can read more about Jane here:

Jane's story combines the single-girl angst of BRIDGET JONES'S DIARY with the magic of HARRY POTTER. Librarianship — and social attitudes toward librarians — are vital to the plot!

If you happen to be in the DC area, I'll be reading from GIRL'S GUIDE at Borders Books and Music on October 3 at 6:30 p.m., at 18th and L. I'd love to see you there!
