The Rights of the Reader

Perhaps the most important function of education is to shape our sense-of-self as a learner. This doesn’t happen through speeches or the occasional triumph. It takes place in the hundreds to thousands of interactions that are as easily forgotten as they are brief. Just as Mark Twain once said, "The man who does not read has no advantage over the man who cannot," The wisdom of Daniel Pennac reminds us of our responsibility to instill a life-long love of reading.
