Arlington Public Library Director Diane Kresh hosts Susan Orlean, bestselling author, journalist and essayist the Washington Post calls "a national treasure."

Susan Orlean's newest work, "The Library Book," an exploration of the history, power, and future of these endangered institutions, is a finalist for the Andrew Carnegie Medals for Excellence in Nonfiction. "The Library Book" is told through the lens of Orlean’s quest to solve a notorious cold case: who set fire to the Los Angeles Public Library in 1986, ultimately destroying 400,000 books? Erik Larson, author of "The Devil in the White City" and "Dead Wake," wrote, “After reading Susan Orlean’s 'The Library Book,' I’m quite sure I’ll never look at libraries, or librarians, the same way again. This is classic Orlean—an exploration of a devastating fire becomes a journey through a world of infinite richness, populated with unexpected characters doing unexpected things, with unexpected passion.”

About the author:

Susan Orlean's deeply moving explorations of American stories both familiar and obscure have earned her a reputation as one of America’s most distinctive journalistic voices. A staff writer for "The New Yorker" for over twenty years and a former contributing editor at "Rolling Stone" and "Vogue," she has been praised as “an exceptional essayist” (Publishers Weekly) and a writer who “approaches her subjects with intense curiosity and fairness” (Bookmarks).

In a career spanning more than three decades, Orlean has also written for Outside, Esquire, The Boston Globe, and more. She is the author of "Rin Tin Tin," "The Orchid Thief," and "Saturday Night," a portrait of the varying experience of Saturday night in dozens of communities across the United States. Entertainment Weekly concluded, “I can’t think of a better way to spend Saturday night than staying home and reading this book.”

Orlean has served as an editor for "Best American Essays" and Best American Travel Writing, and her journalism has been compiled into two collections: "The Bullfighter Checks Her Makeup: My Encounters with Extraordinary People" and "My Kind of Place: Travel Stories from a Woman Who’s Been Everywhere." Orlean’s work has inspired two successful films: "Blue Crush," the story of young women surfing in Maui, and "Adaptation," the metafilm directed by Spike Jonze. Meryl Streep, who portrayed Orlean in the film, was nominated for an Academy Award, as were costars Nicholas Cage and Chris Cooper and writer Charlie Kaufman.

Orlean is currently Rogers Communications Chair in Literary Journalism at the Banff Centre for Arts and Creativity in Alberta, Canada. She is also the host, with actress Sarah Thyre, of the podcast Crybabies, a series of candid conversations with creative guests about the books, music, TV, and movies that make them cry.

Recorded at the Arlington Public Library on April 22, 2019.

Using materials more often seen in highway signs, artist Alicia Eggert explores our relationship with time, anticipation and motion. We'll tell you more about Alicia Eggert's artwork later in our program, but first...

Four hard working entrepreneurs got to pitch their business ideas before a panel of celebrity judges during Ballston's version of "Shark Tank." The Launchpad Challenge program mentored 14 contestants as they developed their ideas into business plans. And there was not one, but TWO winners! The panel of judges included Caps owner Ted Leonsis, Aneesh Chopra, former CTO for Barack Obama; Congressman Gerry Connolly, and Mark Gruhin, of the Saul Ewing law firm. To learn more about business startup opportunities, go to Ballstonbid.com or check out Arlington Economic Development at arlingtonvirginiausa.com.

The work around the Clarendon metro is complete, and the result is an upgraded park and plaza where you can stroll, visit a farmers' market, listen to music, and, of course, catch the Metro. Improvements on the 1.1 acre park were done in conjunction with Metro and have yielded an active, multi-use plaza that's attractive to residents and commuters. The park is also home to the war memorial dedicated to Arlington citizens who gave their lives for our country since World War I. To find out more about park renovations or to find a park near you, check arlingtonva.us/parks.

Arlington Police participated in a recent soccer tournament at Washington-Lee high school to provide at-risk youth with a day of fun and teamwork. The tournament offers teens an opportunity to learn about community recreation programs, and builds trust between teens and the community. Research shows that youth with access to fun, productive activities such as soccer are less likely to become involved in gangs or engage in substance abuse and other destructive behaviors. To learn more, check out www.preventgangsnova.org

Sometimes a sign is just a sign, and sometimes it's a work of art. Alicia Eggert took her illuminated, billboard-style sculpture," You are (on) an island" to the streets of Arlington. Eggert's largest multi-media exhibition to date is on view at Artisphere until February 2. Check the schedule for her work and other exhibits and programs at www.Artisphere.com .

Arlington recently honored four community members with the James B. Hunter Human Rights Award. Leslie Alden, Richard Cobb, Thomas Kelley and Margaret Patterson were honored for their commitment to cultural diversity, human rights, and helping those with little access to government. If you are passionate about helping others and want to volunteer, consider joining one of Arlington's many community groups or the human rights committee. Check our website at arlingtonva.us search commissions.

Well, that's it for another week. Thanks for watching! And we'll see you Around Arlington.

For three days in June, the SuperNOVA performance art festival enlivened the streets of Rosslyn, bringing more than 75 emerging and established local, national, and international artists to energize public spaces and engages audiences in unexpected ways. As Arlington TV covered the festival, we wondered what benefits hosting such a festival could bring into our community, beyond the groundbreaking creativity on view. So we spoke with festival producer Philippa Hughes, Cecilia Cassidy, Executive Director of Rosslyn BID and Karen Vasquez, Director of Cultural Affairs at Arlington Economic Development about the ramifications of the festival, both cultural and economic.

Washington Project for the Arts, in collaboration with Arlington Public Art, presented this participatory lecture as part of their 2012-2013 Professional Practices series, for artists and project sponsors interested in sharpening their skills preparing for public art commissions. St. Louis-based artist and Washington University Sam Fox School of Architecture Professor Ben Fehrmann, who recently completed a public artwork ballston*substation in Arlington County, presented Where to Start: Site Analysis and Design Thinking for Public Art. In this talk, Fehrmann discusses what it takes to begin a public work and the processes taken and mindsets engaged when diving into the realm of public art. Fehrmann was introduced by Scott Kratz, Vice President for Education, National Building Museum; Lisa Gold, Executive Director, Washington Project for the Arts; and Angela Adams, Arlington County Public Art Administrator.

Arlington County celebrated the completion of Phase I of Penrose Square, located at 2503 Columbia Pike. The County's newest square is 17,000 square feet and includes features that incorporate elements of Arlington's vision of sustainability:

"Echo," two-piece sculpture by Richard Deutsch
A tree-covered upper terrace with movable tables and chairs
An inner plaza with a water feature
Small gardens interspersed in the plaza, designed to provide seasonal colors
Sustainable USE OF WATER:
Bio-filtration system underneath the tree terrace to filter storm water runoff and enhance tree root growth
Water recirculation system that allows the water feature to conserve the use of water at the site
The ribbon cutting ceremony was held in front of the square's public art piece, Echo, a two piece sculpture by Richard Deutsch. As a member of Penrose Square's landscape design team, Richard Deutsch created the interactive sculpture inspired by the Three Sisters Radio Towers, formerly located near Columbia Pike and Courthouse Road.

Built in 1913 by the Navy as cutting-edge technology, the towers broadcast the first trans-Atlantic radio signal in 1915, connecting Arlington with the Eiffel Tower. They also introduced regular broadcasts of time signals -- important navigational aids for ships at sea. When National Airport opened in 1941 the towers posed an aviation hazard and were taken down.

Echo provides a modern interpretation of Arlington's significant contribution to the history of communication. The concave elliptical parabolas carved into each monolith reflect and project sound, allowing words spoken into one stone to be heard by listeners at the other. California-based artist Deutsch designs sculpture and environments using stone, water, bronze, and stainless steel. Like Echo, much of his work is marked by an understanding of space and environment and an attention to social context and history.
