Slow Books Manifesto
Maura Kelly is the author of Much Ado About Loving: What Our Favorite Novels Can Teach You About Date Expectations, Not-So-Great Gatsbys and Love in the Time of Internet Personals, a hybrid of advice column and literary criticism. Her op-eds, essays, and other writings have appeared in the New York Times, the Guardian, the Daily, Slate, and Salon. She has written a piece calling for a Slow Books Movement, and encourages people using the cadence of Michael Pollan to "Read books. As often as you can. Mostly classics".
