At the Lilith Fair concert in L.A. I had an opportunity to chat with Emily Kirkpatrick of the National Center for Family Literacy about books, music, literacy and learning.
I asked her why are books and music so linked together for people and she had this to say:
“Passion – I think that’s the most important thing. People become avid readers because there’s a subject that they’re passionate about…and its similar with becoming a musician or enjoying music as a form of expression. It’s something that taps into your passion.”
