From Esther Lombardi:
Books offer something for each of us...
- Escape from life's troubles.
- Discover meaning.
- Travel around the world
(without leaving your favorite reading spot).
- Change the world.
James Baldwin once wrote: "You write in order to change the world, knowing perfectly well that you probably can't, but also knowing that literature is indispensable to the world..."
Like writing, reading is a revolutionary act.
