NEW LOCATION. In a 2011 interview with Reading Rockets, acclaimed author Katherine Paterson encouraged parents to experience literature with their little ones. Citing the Harry Potter phenomenon as a shining example, the Vermont-based writer argued that reading aloud as a family can sow a lifelong love of words, and she should know. A mother of four and a two-time Newbery Medal winner for her children’s novels Bridge to Terabithia and Jacob Have I Loved, she has introduced many a youngster to the world of books. Paterson lays out the importance of literacy in the Vermont Humanities Council’s First Wednesdays lecture “Reading for the Life of the World.”

Price: Free.
