Read and learn new words


What’s a dramaturg?  I was reading an article about Maureen Johnson in the University of Delaware Review (online of course) who is the author of “Shades of London” a series of books about a secret, anti-ghost police force for Young Adults.   Ran into that word dramaturg and had to look it up.

The University of Delaware Review article is here:

Looking up words and learning the meanings enhance all of our education and make us more intelligent.  According to James Patterson famous author in an article on CNBC, “… [life] it’s complicated and the more people read, the more they realize things are complicated,” He goes on to say, “If they [people, kids specifically] are competent readers, they can get through school and there are more possibilities for them.”

So take a tip from James Patterson and life will have more possibilities for you, Dear Writers and Dear Readers.
