Shane Maloney: In Praise of Shhhh

Listen to Shane Maloney: In Praise of Shhhh

Regular browser Shane Maloney asks for a bit of shoosh as he talks about the value silence in our public places, how libraries were once carried on camel back in alphabetical order and how crucial libraries are – not only to his work as a writer but as 'treasure houses' of our culture.

Contains strong language.
