A Passion for Reading

The text of my presentation for the December 9 Art Matters Forum "A Passion for Reading" has been posted online. I addressed the ways in which literary blogs promote a passion for reading, and how, as Virginia Woolf wrote, "The standards we raise and the judgments we pass steal into the air and become part of the atmosphere which writers breathe as they work.”

My co-panelists' presentations can be found here and are well worth reading.
