How Fiction Can Change Reality

Friend and stellar librarian, Elizabeth Timmins, from the Muehl Public Library in Seymour recently shared a link with me of a video on TEDEd that I loved and want to share here with you. The brief video, How Fiction Can Change Reality, asks you to consider how fictional experiences might change your perspective on everyday life. Reading can be an escape from real life and can lead us into other worlds we could have never dreamed of, but reading also captures our thoughts and dreams in a way that can change how we feel about current events and issues.

Watch the video and consider the question it poses. Has reading a work of fiction changed your perspective on a situation in your life?

Hope you get the issue resolved soon. Thanks

Thanks for the heads up! I

Thanks for the heads up! I checked it in the latest version of IE and it displays fine, so perhaps it is an issue with older versions. We'll look into it, but I do recommend that you update to the latest version of your browser to ensure great display, whether of our site or others. Thanks again!
