A Velocity of Being: Letters to A Young Reader (2018)
Preface by David Remnick, editor, The New Yorker; Edited and introduced by Maria Popova
Brain Pickings (brainpickings.org), Edited by Claudia Bedrick, Enchanted Lion Books.
In these pages, some of today’s most wonderful culture-makers—writers, artists, scientists, entrepreneurs, and philosophers—reflect on the joys of reading, how books broaden and deepen human experience, and the ways in which the written word has formed their own character. On the page facing each letter, an illustration by a celebrated illustrator or graphic artist presents that artist's visual response.
This project is woven entirely of goodwill, generosity of spirit, and a shared love of books. Everyone involved has donated their time, and all profits will go to the New York Public Library systems.
