The written word can be a powerful thing.  A poem can create in a few sentences a new and magical way to experience the world.  A novel can take readers places they have never been and introduce them to people they will never meet.  Through memoir, we can discover a bond with people whose lives may be very different from our own.  And the power of non-fiction to help us understand—and even change—the world is essential to democracy.

Today TTT explores the Power of Words with:

Peter Rachleff, retired history professor at Macalester College and co-founder of the East Side Freedom Library   www.eastsidefreedomlibrary.org and Monte Bute, a faculty member at Metropolitan State University who has inspired hundreds of students to wrestle with important, and often challenging, thinkers who have helped shape our times.
