“Accumulated Power”

Just found this treasure – Margaret Mahy on the power of books and memory here in her piece on childhood favourites.  “The voices of my dead parents come to me out of the story, setting up profound sympathetic resonance in that echoing inner library, both voices mingling with mine as I read..”.

From the March/April 1997 issue of The Horn Book Magazine: Special Issue: Family Reading.
