Please join LILRC to meet librarian and author Eva Jurczyk and hear her discuss her acclaimed mystery novel, The Department of Rare Books and Special Collections (Poisoned Pen Press, 2022).

“Toronto librarian Jurczyk’s first novel is a valentine to librarians that doesn’t shy away from their dark sides.” Kirkus.

“The Department of Rare Books and Special Collections, by far the catchiest book title of the year, is written for book lovers who will no doubt dive in and devour it just like real a bookworm. Eva Jurczyk provides a behind the curtains look at the rare book community, insightfully examining the makeup of the bibliophiles who populate it.” New York Journal of Books.

Eva Jurczyk is a writer and librarian living in Toronto. She has written for Jezebel, The Awl, The Rumpus and Publishers Weekly. Her first novel, THE DEPARTMENT OF RARE BOOKS AND SPECIAL COLLECTIONS was published in January 2022 and was an IndieNext and LibraryReads pick.
