Quotes from the news wire:
And it became a sanctuary for me, the librarian -- she watched me for a while. I was kind of this urchin, you know, a street urchin. Then she finally said, you want something ? I said, nah I'm OK. And she gave me a card and -- hard to talk about it. It was a card with my name on it. And, God, nobody had given me anything like that. Nobody gave me anything.
The most, MOST important thing is to read, read all the time ; read when they tell you not to read, what they tell you not to read, read with a flashlight under the covers, read on the bus, standing on a corner, waiting for a friend, in the dentist's waiting room. Read every minute you can. READ LIKE A WOLF EATS. Read.
