A Velocity of Readers

Sara reviews A Velocity of Being: Letters to a Young Reader edited by Maria Popova and Claudia Bedrick (Enchanted Lion, 2018), a delightful collection of letters by writers, philosophers, scientists and more, each paired with a gorgeous illustration by a contemporary illustrator, many of which will be very familiar to picture book lovers! The letters are addressed to anyone who has ever found solace in a book, each writer expounding on what reading is and has meant to them in their lives. Funny, thoughtful, poignant, these letters and illustrations are a sumptuous treat for all the readers and letter writers among us!
