Library Diaries
(2008-08-21)
(wgvu) - LUDINGTON, Mich. (AP) - A Ludington public library employee has
been fired for writing a book that describes a range of unpleasant
patrons, from the merely unpleasant to online sex fiends.
Sally Stern-Hamilton wrote "Library Diaries" using the pen
name Ann Miketa.
She calls it a fictional account based on her on-the-job
experiences in a place she calls "Denialville, Michigan."
The book doesn't name Ludington, but its cover includes a small
picture of the Ludington library.
Library officials learned the author's identity and fired
Stern-Hamilton after 15 years on the job.
The director says it's easy to identify people in the book, even
with names changed.
