Books and libraries are a cornerstone of education and learning as well as a passport to new worlds for men, women, and children across America and around the world. Published with the American Library Association, Reading with the Stars uses the power of politicians, celebrities, and other prominent men and women to celebrate books, libraries, and reading. Fourteen of the biggest names in America offer their thoughts on why literature is important and how books have touched their lives in a myriad of ways. These essays not only offer a unique insight into the author, but serve as a reminder of the power of literature to broaden your mind and worldview. Among those interviewed are:

* Barack Obama
* Oprah Winfrey
* Laura Bush
* David Mamet
* Jamie Lee Curtis
* Julie Andrews
* Bill Gates

A fun, fascinating gift for anyone who works in the world of publishing, libraries, or bookselling or who just appreciates the written word.
