My name is Peter Stephens, and I’ve been at this blog for, what, ten years?

I’ve assembled thirteen posts that focus, one way or another, on slow reading. These posts, collected under the heading “on slow reading,” are available through links in the right sidebar of both this page and the blog’s home page. This collection of posts by six writers serves as the blog’s introduction and suggests a few of the social, creative, educational, oral, literary, spiritual, poetic, and sensual sides of slow reading.

As for me, I was a trial lawyer and then a church worker. For the past decade, I’ve been a Virginia high school English teacher.
