Darin Jenneskens, 11, reads through the first few pages of a Hardy Boys mystery while relaxing against an aisle of books at the new Plummer Public Library. The new facility opened to the public Monday.
Initially I was gathering images for a compilation to promote reading but, instead, my gallery became a montage of book-reading men and boys over the last two centuries, photographed and painted, famous or otherwise. With every viewing, the images reshuffle. A montage of book-reading women and girls can be found under Part One.
Reading is rightness!
