5 TED Talks Every Book Lover Should Watch
I enjoy learning new things, but I don’t have a lot of time to designate to this pursuit. That’s why I love TED Talks! I feel like I’m sitting down to watch TV so I get a little rest, I learn something, AND I’m not binging away my evening. (Okay, once or twice I’ve binged a little on TED Talks but it’s rare.)
These talks will make you laugh, think, and most importantly, they’ll make you want to grab a book and get in some reading time!
Chip Kidd: Designing books is no laughing matter. OK it is.
Lisa Bu: How books can open your mind
Elif Shafak: The politics of fiction
Dawn Wacek: A librarian’s case against overdue book fines
