This I Believe Recording

“Former Rhode Islander and noted author Jhumpa Lahiri wrote this wonderful line in a column she penned for the New York Times: "The first sentence of a book is a handshake, perhaps an embrace."  What Lahiri seems to be saying is that introductions matter, especially when we embark on an intense relationship, whether it be with a book or a person.  All of us march through life filled with opportunities to make first impressions.  They may not entail literal handshakes, but whatever form they take, we know that these impressions often have vital consequences, which is what he hear from seasoned educator John Wolf. “
