A thoughtful blog entry from a student in my “Media and Culture” class.
When I clicked on the link to “The Fantastic Flying Books of Mr. Morris Lessmore,” despite the interesting title, I was expecting something very academic. But what I found was something so moving that inspired great emotion in me. I guess that I should have expected something like it because when we talk about “The Role of the Writer” and books in general we are discussing a subject that is so much more than academic. I thought the video just really put a “face” to the underlying idea of all of our conversations: Books matter. –via They may take our books, but they can’t take our love. « Beth Anne Swartzwelder.
