​Seek Solace and Strength Through Reading and Writing

“Reading makes immigrants of us all. It takes us away from home, but more important it finds homes for us everywhere.” — Jean Rhys

“All the research out there — Census data, NEA reports, the Pew Research Center’s work on libraries and reading in low-income neighborhoods — all of it points toward reading enjoyment as the surest predictor of health, wealth and good citizenship. Readers volunteer more, vote more, even exercise more. And a recent Yale study categorically shows what most of us have long suspected: Readers live longer than nonreaders.” — David Kipen, Los Angeles Times

As a nation, we have just endured one of the most contentious and shocking elections in modern history, with the aftermath still to be determined. If life seems overwhelming and disheartening right now, we encourage you to be strong. Have faith. Pick up a book. Let’s all continue to expand our worldviews via the written word, and work towards a more loving, peaceful, and positive future.
