"We must love one another or die." - Auden, quoted by John Green this weekend

John Green is my new literary crush. I got to hear him speak at a children's lit conference this weekend (and also got to eat raspberry ice cream from mallards! YUM!) and fell in love. I would post the whole speech here because it was so brilliant, but essential point is that:

story is what helps us see that other people are people. who have needs like us.

Please watch below to see brilliant summary of Catcher in the Rye, and then go check out the vlog brothers.
