  • How Classical Literature Changed My Life

    young adult books captivated me with what, at the time, were intriguing and comprehensible plot lines. Thus began my love affair with books.

It persisted until the gifts of classical literature unwrapped as I learned to penetrate, explore, and discover meanings in, for example, Dickens’ lengthy description of a clock tower did I truly find my beloved. Although young adult books…

    second grade, I set out to read as many books as I could from the school library with the goal of completing them all before leaving for junior high. About halfway through this quest, I stumbled upon comic books tucked away in a dusty corner. This is where I discovered superheros; Captain America was my favorite.
