A Valentine to Books

Editor’s note: This blog post comes from board member and NPR lover Genevieve Lyons.

Did any of ya’ll hear Nature Notes this morning? Every day on ETV Radio, Rudy Mancke shares a little tidbit (60 seconds!) from his vast knowledge about local flora and fauna.  He might answer a listener question about an insect or creature, tell an anecdote from a recent encounter with nature, or give a tip to watch for a tree or flower that is coming into bloom.

Today, he answered an unusual question. It is almost as if Turning Pages had called him up and requested a valentine to books. I just had to share it with you all.

For a short and lovely reminder of the meaning of the gift of literacy: Books!

If any of you, dear readers, would like to share your own valentine, favorite book, or encounter with literacy, I’d love to talk to you. Email me: genevieve {dot} ray {at} gmail {dot} com.
