Críticas A CBC Hot Off The Press Selection of December 2018 A Brain Pickings Best Children's Book of 2018 Featured in Green Source DFW December 2018 gift guide An embarrassment of riches. --The New York Times Impelled to defend the dignity and authority of books and the transformative power of continuing to read them in the digital age Maria Popova and Claudia Zoe Bedrick spent eight years collecting the words and artwork for A Velocity of Being (Enchanted Lion 257 pages $34.95) a treasury of thoughtful quirky heartfelt letters from notable adults to the young reader. ...For adults devoted to raising strong readers amid what Ms. Popova calls the fragment fetishism of the internet--and for book lovers of any age on a Christmas list--A Velocity of Being has arrived not a moment too soon. --Wall Street Journal This feast of a book provides ample food for thought with some dazzling visuals to boot. But like many feasts this one goes on at length with flavors and courses that tend to overlap. Still the collection will nourish readers of all kinds deserving a permanent place on our bookshelves. --Joan Silverman The National Book Reveiw This should live on the nightstand be picked up regularly and savored. A treasure trove for anyone who loves words and pictures. --Amina Chaudhri Booklist 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? -- Michelle Sterling Avery and Augustine Reseña del editor In these pages some of today's most wonderful culture-makers-writers artists scientists entrepreneurs and philosophers-reflect on the joys of reading how books broaden and deepen human experience and the ways in which the written word has formed their own character. On the page facing each letter an illustration by a celebrated illustrator or graphic artist presents that artist's visual response. Among the diverse contributions are letters from Jane Goodall Neil Gaiman Jerome Bruner Shonda Rhimes Ursula K. Le Guin Yo-Yo Ma Judy Blume Lena Dunham Elizabeth Gilbert and Jacqueline Woodson as well as a ninety-eight-year-old Holocaust survivor a pioneering oceanographer and Italy's first woman in space. Some of the illustrators cartoonists and graphic designers involved are Marianne Dubuc Sean Qualls Oliver Jeffers Maira Kalman Mo Willems Isabelle Arsenault Chris Ware Liniers Shaun Tan Tomi Ungerer and Art Spiegelman. This project is woven entirely of goodwill generosity of spirit and a shared love of books. Everyone involved has donated their time and all profits will go to the New York Public Library systems.
