Susan Orlean

Staff writer for The New Yorker, played by none other than Meryl Streep in the film adaptation of The Orchid Thief, she's turned her hand to children's literature with Lazy Little Loafers. For kids of reading age, the book addresses why babies (i.e., those younger, resented new siblings) don't have to do chores or homework. (Also Third Place, 10 a.m. Fri. Oct. 10.) BRIAN MILLER
