Wisdom from Harper Lee

Garrison Keillor shares this wise quote today from Harper Lee, author of “To Kill a Mockingbird”:

“…in an abundant society where people have laptops, cell phones, iPods, and minds like empty rooms, I still plod along with books. Instant information is not for me. I prefer to search library stacks because when I work to learn something, I remember it.”

[But in a sign of the times, I just read that she has agreed to allow To Kill a Mockingbird to be released as an e-book.]
