These witty, insightful, and readable writings on the various aspects of alternative librarianship, edited by two outspoken library professionals, is a sequel to Revolting Librarians, published in 1972. The contributors, including such as Alison Bechdel, Sanford Berman, Utne Reader librarian Chris Dodge, Rory Litwin, Marilyn Gell Mason, Noel Peattie, Toni Samek, and Jana Varlejs, cover topics that range from library education and librarianship as a profession to the more political and spiritual aspects. The contributions include critiques of library and information science programs, firsthand accounts of work experiences, and original fiction, poetry and art. Ten of the original librarians who wrote essays for Revolting Librarians back in 1972 reflect upon what they wrote thirty years ago and the turns that their lives and careers have taken since.
