Kate Messner’s poem on the impact of books

If you haven’t read Kate Messner’s beautiful, moving poem yet about how our books can reach readers, you’ll want to check it out! It talks of the way books give us what we need, and how our books give that to others. Just beautiful. So beautiful I want to print it out and put it somewhere I’ll read it!

I needed her poem today; I’m sure I’m not the only one who did. Give it a read!
