Reading can be a way to escape, to learn, to explore and to imagine. Creating the words that go on the page can be based in reality, fantasy or a mixture. As a reader and a writer to what extent is our perspective framed by our culture, our experiences, our norms and our circumstance…., and how does that narrow our focus on what we read and what we get from it. Just as fictional characters are not real, so our perspective is framed by what we read, which is also not a real representation of the world. Why are we more comfortable and accepting of the limitations of a childrens book, than the framework of our bias. From cultural blind spots to children’s’ conversation, join us as we explore reading and the passion of words.
