Published with the American Library Association, Reading with the Stars uses the power of politicians, celebrities, and other prominent men and women to celebrate books, libraries, and reading. Fourteen of the biggest names in America offer their thoughts on why literature is important and how books have touched their lives. Television icon Oprah Winfrey discusses how library books were her “pass to personal freedom.” Microsoft founder Bill Gates discusses his library computerization project. Former Vice President Al Gore addresses the “information ecosystem,” including how reading contributes to an informed citizenry. A fun, fascinating gift for any- one who works in the world of publishing, libraries, or bookselling.
