Catch an interview with Leslie featured on the National Book Foundation web site today. While you’re there, consider who to nominate for the Foundation’s 2014 Innovations in Reading Prize. Excerpt:

“There are moments when we’re packing up the books when there’s a kid who seems to be more than just disappointed that the day is over. Maybe even distraught. Is this a love of books, or maybe a love of a safe, pleasant place to be? Maybe both. We’ve learned that the Uni can be a haven, a kind of oasis in a very busy and sometimes challenging city.”
