LIT-RA-CHA! It’s good for you (like oat bran), but it’s also tasty (like chocolate). The reason these books have existed for so long is because there are what English majors like to call “universal human events”. No matter how old the story gets, it will be relevant to the human race.
Stephen Leacock keeps us laughing at the dimwits in our communities; Mr. Poe writes about the monsters that won’t stay in our closets; Jonathan Swift takes our weirdest dreams and puts them on paper.
These books range from $3-$15. There are new, clean books, and there are old books with that great smell.
Drop by Mississauga Central Library to pick up one of these books that have escaped from The Glass Room for one week.
