Why we read
Why we sometimes struggle to find the way forward

Why we create

Howard Gayton, spring 2011

“But unless we are creators we are not fully alive. What do I mean by creators? Not only artists, whose acts of creation are the obvious ones of working with paint or clay or words. Creativity is a way of living life, no matter our vocation or how we earn our living.”  - Madeleine L'Engle

“Deliver me from writers who say the way they live doesn't matter. I'm not sure a bad person can write a good book. If art doesn't make us  better, then what on earth is it for?”   - Alice Walker
