Name: Sonia Astorga
Description: Some people, like myself, develop a love for reading at a young age. For such individuals, picking up a book means getting ready to go on an adventure, or escaping into a completely different world from our own. For readers, the words on a page come to life as teachers, mentors, enemies, allies, and friends that feel irrationally real. Reading is something people like me do often, even when it seems that there are not enough hours in the day to do the things that keep our lives on track, but what about the people who stop reading entirely? What about those who stop, most of them without wanting to, after loving to read during the times when their lives weren’t so packed with responsibilities and obligations? I want my project to be aimed at this particular audience, to remind them the wonder of loving to read again.
