Why Books Will Always Matter

Lisa Lucas, The Scholarly Kitchen, Sept 22, 2017
Commentary by Stephen Downes

It's no surprise to me that the Executive Director for the National Book Foundation would offer a spirited defense of books. “They connect us to one another," she says. "They make people who are not like us more human.” But I find it ironic that this short video would give me more of a glimpse into who Lisa Lucas is and what she's like than any book she's ever written. New media gives us a reach books never did - both as readers and writers.
