A Letter in Praise of Books
In one of the most remarkable AAUP keynotes in memory, Colorado poet Aaron A. Abeyta delivered his "Letter to Pratt in Praise of Books" on June 18. The spirit of Abeyta's letter carried through the meeting, a ringing reminder of how we connect to each other and to our driving mission. "Language is what carries me forward and simultaneously into the past." Read the full Letter, reproduced courtesy of Aaron A. Abeyta and University Press of Colorado >
