I continued with the former professor’s tradition of reading a story to the class that I took over, at first, because students wanted me to do so. But then I understood the power of story. Books, film, and other forms of story have a strong effect on how people view the world.

Some Action Items in support of literacy and hope that you can take right now:
1.) Download some public domain version of a classic book, or grab your favorite version of the The Arabian Nights (yes, I know: the 1001 Nights was by Antoine Galland, who made up a few stories and inserted them into older Arabic and Persian stories that may have come from India, but still…) or any other story, in an original language, if possible!
2.) Read a page,
3.) Share your thoughts on that page, perhaps as an update on your GoodReads reading,
4.) Write a novel that references a classic book, tells a good story, and makes a difference. I’m working on that through my historical fantasy #WiP, #WhoByFireIWill. Once published, donate one or more copies to your local public library, as I intend to do.
