The bad-ass librarians of Timbuktu

Summary
Very few people suspected that the African country of Mali sheltered countless delicate manuscripts that recorded the country's history and intellectual heritage, until Islamic militants began destroying them in 2012. In this page-turning account, journalist Joshua Hammer traces the work of Abdel Kader Haidara, who traveled all over Mali in the 1980s in order to collect the documents and assure their preservation in a Timbuktu library. After Al Qaeda sympathizers invaded this ancient city, Haidara mobilized a plan to spirit the collection to safety in southern Mali. This is an irresistible chronicle of fascinating history and personal commitment. -- Description by Katherine Bradley Johnson
