Why did you choose your featured book?

Freedom is about two Macalester friends and roommates: one becomes a self-destructive rock star, the other becomes a very unconventional environmentalist. Franzen is a hilarious writer, though his sense of humor is a bit dark. He tackles big issues, including politics and the struggle to be a good person. Most of all, he understands the intricacies of human relationships.

I have enjoyed working with Suphachai, Elvi, Janet, Danielle, Dave, and all the other student employees, they're wonderful. Working at the library is fun, and it's relaxed. Plus, I get to be around books!
