Dear Library Patrons, The mission of NYPL is to inspire lifelong learning, advance knowledge, and strengthen our communities. Government support only pays for a portion of our work, so we rely on you to help - from stocking our shelves with amazing books, expanding our e-Book selection, classes, events, or even making free WiFi accessible to all. We are trying to raise $500,000 by December 31: an ambitious goal, but one that will fund incredible learning and reading in our community.

When I first began to read this book, it didn't engage me. I didn't engage with it. So I put it down, thinking "too rich, too dense." A few months later, I picked the book up again, began to read it casually, and then couldn't stop. Images and passages from this book continue to inform my life twenty years later. It's been a gift.

So a few weeks ago, I picked it up again, thinking to renew the experience. But it didn't engage me. I didn't engage with it. I'm waiting now....
