National Public Radio's "All Things Considered" recently aired a story about children's author Jeanette Winter and her book The Librarian of Basra: A True Story from Iraq. According to NPR, the story is "about a librarian who saved 70 percent of an Iraqi town's books during the U.S. invasion." Click HERE to open the NPR Web site where you can listen to this inspirational story! (Thanks to Gary Price's ResourceShelf for tipping us off to this story.)
