Reading a book is one of the greatest pleasures there is, but too often we read only to find out what happens. Literature of all kinds, however, is much richer than a mere series of events. Literature can make us more compassionate, teach us gospel truths, and fill our lives with beauty. We will learn how to evaluate literature and how to read and teach literature so that all its richness influences us. “Nothing touches the soul but leaves its impress, and thus, little by little, we are fashioned into the image of all we have seen, heard, known, and meditated. And if we learn to live with all that is the fairest and the purest and the best, the love of it all will, in the end, become our very lives.” This is what literature can become for us.
