Anna Quindlen's Opening Session Remarks

Anna Quindlen:

Librarians: We salute you!

"I lived within the cover of books."

Emily Dickinson:

There is no frigate like a book
To take us lands away.

I hate to write but I love having written.

I love writing because it’s who I voice

Reading is an absolute necessity! The ultimate democratic act of the greatest democratic nation on earth.

Is the book in danger from technology? Books will not disappear...nor will magazines or newspapers.

"I believe in reading."

You are the keepers of magic...freedom..opportunity...mind..heart
