DreamWorks has picked up the film rights to Rainbow Rowell’s YA novel Eleanor and Park, abouttwo outsider teens who fall in love in 1986 Omaha. (If you haven’t read Linda Holmes’ essay on the book, you should really check it out.)
After the deal was announced, Rowell tweeted: “I’ve already told them my worst movie nightmare: that a skinny girl gets cast as Eleanor and Keanu Reeves gets cast as Park …” 
And that got us thinking — who should play Eleanor and Park?

Give a kid a book, and you change the world. In a way, even the universe.

In the third episode of his Cosmos series, Neil deGrasse Tyson echoes Carl Sagan even down to the timeless sentiment about books.

For good measure, complement with Maurice Sendak’s little-known and lovely posters on the joy of reading.

Tom Hiddleston reads When You Are Old by W. B. Yeats

When you are old and grey and full of sleep,
And nodding by the fire, take down this book,
And slowly read, and dream of the soft look
Your eyes had once, and of their shadows deep;
How many loved your moments of glad grace,
And loved your beauty with love false or true,
But one man loved the pilgrim soul in you,
And loved the sorrows of your changing face;
And bending down beside the glowing bars,
Murmur, a little sadly, how Love fled
And paced upon the mountains overhead
And hid his face amid a crowd of stars.

April is National Poetry Month! Check out this poem by acclaimed writer W.B. Yeats as read by actor Tom Hiddleston.
