The editors behind the Librarian with Spines series have released

the third volume in this popular series. Volume III of LWS is another

anthology-this time, 5 essays on radical librarianship and a

Spanglish interview with Oregon Library Superstar Star Khan-that

engages with critical topics and themes that explore what it means

to "librarian" on behalf of marginalized and under-represented

communities. From Andrew Barber and Michelle Gohr's indictment

of the Neoliberal Academic Library to Oleg Kagan's championing

of the library as a space for immigrant empowerment to Yesenia

Villar's courageous essay confronting racism and oppression in public

librarianship to Jason Alston's decimation of armchair advocacy

vis-a-vis delusions of grandeur common in librarianship to Roland

Barksdale-Hall's refl ections on creating empowerment curriculum

for residents in public housing. The five chapters and interview are

not only singular and innovative, but they exert ideas in librarianship

that are generative, dynamic, far-reaching, community-centered,

and resonate with BIPOC Librarians and allies alike. Edited by Max

Macias, Yago Cura and co-edited by Westley Reason, volume 3 seeks

to resuscitate the radical breath and inspiration that was put out into

the world with Librarians with Spines, volumes 1 and 2.
