The heft of A Velocity of Being: Letters to a Young Reader makes it feel grand and immense; momentous on its first page turn yet deeply personal. It’s a collection of letters and art for readers young and old from a community of writers, artists and other notable figures who speak about the deep magic of falling headlong into a story, the transformative power of words — stories settling into us, burrowing into our souls, running through our veins and becoming a part of who we are.
Reading through compelling letter after letter is overwhelming in the best way possible. What are we without words, stories and books? Seek out a copy today, for you and the readers in your life. Profits from the book go to the New York Public Library.
