About the Talk

As friends of reading, we will share with one another about where and what we like to read, about the magic of childhood and the navigation of adulthood, about the poetics of reading and the idiosyncrasies of reading styles, and about the wealth of possibilities for creativity that reading creates. How we will wonder together in this interactive session, has reading changed our lives?1
