Among the Gently Mad, Redux: Nicholas Basbanes is the author of A Gentle Madness: Bibliophiles, Bibliomanes, and the Eternal Passion for Books, a New York Times Notable Book of the Year, and Patience and Fortitude: A Roving Chronicle of Book People, Book Places and Book Culture, to be published in early fall. Mr. Basbanes was an essayist, reviewer, and reporter before turning his own passion for books into a remarkable "magnum opus" that investigates book collectors and their stories and which recounts 2,500 years of the preservation of knowledge through print. Mr. Basbanes is a fascinating and articulate speaker who is himself a virtual library of knowledge about book collections and collectors.
