The Joy of Reading in a poster
Literally. You are going to read the whole poster, and by doing it, you are celebrating the joy of reading!
This amazing poster was designed by Roz Chast, the New Yorker cartoonist whom when given a pen and paper, creates fantastic worlds, and is with that talent that she gave birth to this poster for the Library of Congress’s 2017 National Book Festival. She always has been a book-loving kid, and also a book-loving grown-up.
“As the poster proclaims, books are meaningful, magical and necessary for everyone,” Librarian of Congress Carla Hayden says. “Roz captured the spirit of the book festival in a wonderful way, and we’re excited to be able to show it off.”
