Every reader has one: a favorite book read in childhood that stays with us to this day. Not necessarily a children’s book; but whether written for children or adults, a book that spoke to us in some way we couldn’t ignore. It awakened our love of words, or transported us to faraway places. Or widened our inner horizons beyond anything we’d ever experienced. A book that made us believe in magic, plumbed new depths of emotion, introduced us to a character who became an old friend. Whatever its enchantment, that book is an old friend, too.
The Write Room authors below invite you to explore some of their “old friends.” To ponder, perhaps recall your own favorite book from long ago…and most of all, enjoy.
