From By the Book with American composer, Philip Glass, in this week’s New York Times Book Review:
What kind of reader were you as a child? Your favorite books and authors?
My mother was a professional librarian. By the time we were 7 or 8 we all had our library cards from Enoch Pratt Free Library in Baltimore. Every Friday, my sister, my brother and I would go there and get our books for the week.
I especially love this, given the valiant way that the branch of the Enoch Pratt Free Library that was at the epicenter of the riots in Baltimore last Monday stayed open, offering shelter and support.
