Sarah Vowell - author of "The Wordy Shipmates" and other awesome books; also a contributing editor for public radio's "This American Life." To say that I've met her is to say she signed my book at a Public Library Association Conference, so we're not really close or anything. However, I do keep on my desk her final words to the room full of librarians - "So, go forth and peddle your books and your smut." It makes me laugh.

“A public library is the most democratic thing in the world. What can be found there has undone dictators and tyrants: demagogues can persecute writers and tell them what to write as much as they like, but they cannot vanish what has been written in the past, though they try often enough...People who love literature have at least part of their minds immune from indoctrination. If you read, you can learn to think for yourself.” ― Doris Lessing photo uncredited
