If there is a reason enough to start the New Year with a commitment to read more here it is:

“Stories shape our lives and in some cases help define a person,” Dr. Gregory S. Berns, director of Emory University’s Center for Neuropolicy in Atlanta, said in a written statement. “We want to understand how stories get into your brain, and what they do to it.”

To think that the impacts of reading a great story can last up to 5 days and increase brain activity is just a reminder to us that what we do at Harrelson Press is changing lives.
