From True-Life Tragedy, through Mind, Body & Spirit, Sociology, Large Print, and Teen Fiction, Emmy and Jack use song, poetry, multimedia to present a light-hearted lament for the library. Featuring guest contributions from Elizabeth Sankey – one half of indie duo Summer Camp – comedian and visual artist Miriam Elia and novelist and poet Joe Dunthorne.
