​the Chamber of Secrets

Harry Potter (AKA the chosen one) has a date with destiny.  Prophecy marks him as the One who will be able to defeat the Dark Lord--but for now, he's just a kid with problems of his own.

This playlist  was recorded some years ago.  Today these messages are more relevant than ever.  Being ahead of your time isn't much fun, but it's really useful when we all get to the point of 2020 Hindsight.

A notorious criminal has escaped from Wizard Prison, and he's looking for Revenge!

Harper Lee produced her Pulitzer Prize winning Great American Novel in 1960.  To Kill a Mockingbird presents a rich and nuanced picture of complex cultural issues; a female lead character worthy of honor; and in Scout's father, Atticus, an icon of true integrity.

Milo has a very uninteresting existence, UNTIL the sudden arrival of the Phantom Tollbooth ushers him into the Lands Beyond.  This journey of discovery and transformation is full of wit and word-play that always satisfies.

​the Phantom Tollbooth

In this pivotal installment of the story, Dumbledore begins to personally prepare Harry for the ultimate battle with the Dark Lord.

Barbara Parks has given us a tiny heroine whose story is as hilarious as it is easy to read.

In book two of the Harry Potter saga, things heat up as an Ancient Evil is released at Hogwarts, and Harry the prime suspect.

Animal Farm was written before 1984.  In this classic story, the animals of Manor Farm stage a revolution and overthrow the tyranny of Human Beings.  As the tale unfolds, we see the first flush of promise turn slowly into totalitarian rule.  This is Orwell's reminder of how the seemingly *Brand New Ideas* of Socialism have ALWAYS played out on Planet Earth.

Dr. Seuss uses the simplest words possible to teach us the most important things. The power of Faithfulness, the weakness of Vanity, and the importance of Every Voice.

High geek-value presentations of the places where modern Physics meets ancient Mysticism.

Stanley Yelnats inherited a nasty curse from his dirty rotten pig-stealing great great grandfather. Fate gives him the opportunity to turn it all around.

Farenheit 451-the temperature at which paper burns.  Ray Bradbury writes with poetic grace about a possible future in which Firemen  burn books and sometimes the criminals who read them.  This beautifully crafted tale of redemption follows Firman Guy Montag through his awakening and return to sanity.  May it be so for our troubled world.

​Tells it Like it Is

George Orwell put pen to paper in 1948 and brought forth his classic cautionary tale 1984. This prophetic warning paints a horrifyingly familiar portrait of a culture shaped by the Party.
