A Gift and a Correction
April 14 is John Holt’s birthday, and to celebrate the occasion I am offering free downloads of the new digital edition of John Holt’s Escape From Childhood: The Needs and Rights of Children.
From Saturday, April 13 until midnight, Monday, April 15 there will be free downloads of the Kindle book, Escape From Childhood: The Needs and Rights of Children by John Holt. If you don't own a Kindle, you can read Kindle books on your computer or smartphone using these free apps from Amazon.
Yesterday I emailed this site’s newsletter, Learning All the Time. In it I made some announcements, but, unfortunately, I overlooked two things before I hit “Send,” much to my regret. First, I left a typo in the title of the new book; the correct title is:
The Legacy of John Holt: A Man Who Genuinely Understood, Trusted, and Respected Children
Second, I accidentally left off the name of a contributor to the book, Wendy Priesnitz. Many apologies, Wendy. Here is the correct list of contributors:
Roland Meighan, Vita Wallace, Nelson, Kirk, and Strobe Talbott, Alec Clowes, Berrien Moore, Thomas Armstrong, Jerry Mintz, Peggy Hughes, Merloyd Lawrence, Wendy Priesnitz, Larry and Susan Kaseman, Theo and Anita Geisy, Peter Bergson, Patrick Farenga, Susannah Sheffer, Aaron Falbel, and Jenny Wright. The introduction is by Kirsten Olson.
I’ll be publishing excerpts from the book in the next Learning All the Time newsletter.
