The Speed Read

Susan Boyle is shopping a book around, somewhat tardily, as she's been famous for what, two weeks now....Tom Robbins writes a children's book, about beer....Happy Birthday, Harper Lee!... Bob Dylan borrows from Walt Whitman, a great literary borrower himself....LA Times Festival of Books attendees take up graffiti to proclaim their love of reading....Not many writers' archives include a quilt, but Alice Walker's does and it's now on display at Emory University.
