The following link will take you to a wonderful article that the author, Neil Gaiman wrote on the importance of libraries, reading and imagination. He really makes a wonderful argument for how important books are in our lives and the workings of society. I was saddened to read that the size of prisons can be based on what percentage of 10 and 11 year old children can’t read. And I was interested to learn why China now encourages the reading of science fiction.

Read and enjoy. Neil Gaiman is one of my favorite authors and a pretty neat human being.

Neil Gaiman: Why our future depends on libraries, reading and daydreaming

A lecture explaining why using our imaginations, and providing for others to use theirs, is an obligation for all citizens

Also you may want to watch a Commencement Address that Neil Gaiman gave in 2012. Amazing Stuff. I have watched it several times because it reminds me to be the best I can be as an artist and writer. Make good art.
