Have you ever heard of Mortimer J. Adler? He was an American philosopher, educator, encyclopedist and popular author. He said: “In the case of good books, the point is not to see how many of them you can get through, but rather how many can get through to you.” Is there a story that you remember as a special one? What makes it special?

In celebration of World Book Night, Livija Pribanić, the English teacher and storyteller, will share her special story with you.
