Summary "There's a hush in the quiet of Black dark secrets of Princeton's Place. It's a secret that goes beyond the shackles of space time hidden beyond the spectacles of librarians here tending to the night desk of Firestone Library at Princeton University. YOU are headed in the space beyond the librarian's Black spectacles, a Black space of knowledge and understanding filled with surprise outside the void suspicious called Black. The librarian's eyes mirror those of a mole buried in the moss of brown dirt. She lies in the smell of fresh rain water and curated soil called words. It is a magical space and only opens one's eyes through the magnification beyond marginalized vocabulary called books. It's a magnification of another adventure. But YOU have to get your hands on the black specs first"--Jacket, p. 4.
