Better Read Millennials, Stephen King's Ancestors, and a Piece of Writing You'll Never See

Here's a round-up of cool reading/writing news that I've come across recently and thought you'd enjoy too!

According to a new Pew Research Center Study, as Slate reports, Millennials are better read than previous generations. 

No real surprise that James Patterson is the top-earning writer -- coming in at $94 million this past year -- according to Forbes' list of top earning writers. And, of course, my super-hero Stephen King is also on the list.

Speaking of Stephen King...

He'll be on "Finding Your Roots," hosted by Henry Louis Gates, Jr. on September 23. Check your local listings!

And King has also done a recent interview in The Atlantic where he talks about teaching English...with great sympathy for teachers.

Onto another hero: Margaret Atwood. Unfortunately, you'll have to live another 100 years before you get to read her new work. She's agreed to write a piece for a time capsule-ish art project.
