USC Libraries Dean Catherine Quinlan was recently a guest on the podcast of The World Is Just a Book Away, a children's literacy nonprofit. The organization was founded by USC Marshall professor James Owens, who also hosts the podcast. In the episode, Quinlan discusses how books have shaped her life and the role libraries play in an "era of information overload."

Edited by Owens and published by the USC Libraries, the hardbound anthology features sixty essays from prominent world leaders, artists, scientists, and other authors about their personal love for reading.
