Barbara Ehrenreich and I sat on a panel together at a conference and I find her books interesting and her straight forward talk refreshing.
Alice Walker: Alice Walker is most famous for her novel The Color Purple and she holds the title as the first African-American woman to win the Pulitzer Prize for Fiction. Walker's writing career and personal life has mostly centered on race and gender inequality. Her written work and political involvement have made her a respected figure among African-Americans and female audiences around the world.

Reading Come To Life --- Not sure if this is an actual physical book page sculpture/carving/origami thing-a-ma-jigger or an art image that's been PhotoShopped. Either way, it's gorgeous. I hope that little ship kicks the evil octopus' ass in the end. Book Sculpture, Open Book, Fantasy Books, Book Pages, Read Books, Paper Sculptures, Octopus, 3D Paper Art Books, Old Books
There are too many books that I wish to read that I cannot list them all but this display is 1001 Books to Read Before You Die in a cool art form.
Mister! he said with a sawdusty sneeze, I am the Lorax. I speak for the trees. I speak for the trees, for the trees have no tongues. And I’m asking you, sir, at the top of my lungs– he was very upset as he shouted and puffed– What’s that THING you’ve made out of my Truffula tuft? … But now, says the Once-ler, Now that you’re here, the word of the Lorax seems perfectly clear. UNLESS someone like you cares a whole awful lot, nothing is going to get better. It’s not. -The Lorax Ban Book, Book Cover
I guess banned books make great movies.
Have to have the classics!
Muppets or puppets are a great way to introduce stories to kids. How about a puppet show in the kids section each week?
I love Sesame Street! These characters are great to help young kids learn to read!
