The Library: A Fragile History

In the first episode of 2023, Kate Whiting speaks to academics and authors Professor Andrew Pettegree and Dr Arthur der Weduwen about their book The Library: A Fragile History. They discuss why, despite our love of collecting books, they have often been neglected and become tools and targets during times of war, while romance novels have gone from scourge to saviour of the modern-day library.
