A celebration of books and reading!

Posted on: April 24th, 2016 by Lori

DAVID DENBY, staff writer and former film critic at the New Yorker and the author of LIT UP One Reporter. Three Schools. Twenty-four Books That Can Change Lives is coming to Bookmark

LIT UP is a dramatic narrative that traces awkward and baffled beginnings but also exciting breakthroughs and the emergence of pleasure in reading.  In a sea of bad news about education and the fate of the book, Denby reaffirms the power of great teachers and the importance of an inspiration provided by great books.  A delight in itself, LIT UP will make readers fall in love with reading all over again, and send them rushing to their nearest bookstore or library.

Praise for LIT UP

“Part literary meditation, part case study of exemplary teaching, LIT UP traces a diverse group of adolescents as they are drawn into the ‘character-forming experience of reading difficult books’ by their ardent and caring (and, as duly noted, union) teachers….Denby’s engrossing report from the field has a narrative arc of its own: his story concerns how disaffected and/or disadvantaged high schoolers can become thoughtful, independent readers when their teachers have the freedom to construct their own curriculum so that students connect emotionally with what they read.” Booklist, Starred review

“A readable work recommended to anyone who agrees that reading widely is vital to a productive, fulfilling life.” Library Journal

“Energetic and engaged”Publishers Weekly

“An upbeat portrait of fine teachers and the students they inspire.” Kirkus Reviews
