Friend and stellar librarian, Elizabeth Timmins, from the Muehl Public Library in Seymour recently shared a link with me of a video on TEDEd that I loved and want to share here with you. The brief video, How Fiction Can Change Reality, asks you to consider how fictional experiences might change your perspective on everyday life. Reading can be an escape from real life and can lead us into other worlds we could have never dreamed of, but reading also captures our thoughts and dreams in a way that can change how we feel about current events and issues.
Watch the video and consider the question it poses. Has reading a work of fiction changed your perspective on a situation in your life?
