Illustrating the value of books

May 2006

Love affairs with books start early -- with Little Golden Books, coloring books and a child's first library book. Although such love may wax and wane through the years, most people would at least partially agree with Thomas Jefferson's sentiment, "I cannot live without books." In this literary-themed issue, we sample the works of a wide variety of alumni authors and peek at a few ways books and writers touch our lives.
