60 Years of Charlotte’s Web

This October will mark the 60th anniversary of Charlotte’s Web.  I remember when my son brought the book home from school.  It was all I could do not to snatch it up and make off to a quiet corner.  Apparently, I’m not the only writer who feels that way.

If you haven’t read it in a while, Kate DiCamillo challenges you to read it again as a writer.  She discusses the impact of certain lines but also the themes that still touch people today the same way they did when the book first came out.

Celebrate reading, celebrate writing, celebrate great books.
