The Wonder of Words Festival starts this weekend, so what better time to reread your favorite book? And we bet that, more than just providing an entertaining romp, that special story or poem contained words of wisdom that have stuck with you through the years. For our November/December issue, which will be unveiled later today, we asked local literary experts what life-changing advice they discovered in their favorite reads. Find out what they told us by reading a sneak peek of the article here. You’ll also learn about some of the highlights of this year’s festival, including presentations by Billy Collins, John Shors and Henry Rollins.
