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.

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

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 Nazi mind control techniques so evident during WWII. When the war ended, those techniques of strategic emotional manipulation were adopted by the American advertising industry, because they work.

Today, we have been groomed by relentless advertisement into excellent consumers who serve the Economy. A Good Consumer is neurotic, anxious, and searching for an instant solution that can be bought from a store.  Good Consumers rely on the Voice of Authority to tell them what to think, and above all, who to hate.

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.

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.

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.

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.
