The Library of Congress and Stevie Wonder
Stevie Wonder is one of my favorites. I think because my dad is a fan and the music reminds me of him. So, news of note today is that the Library of Congress has honored Stevie with the Gershwin Prize.
As some of you juniors know, the Library of Congress is the largest library in the world and holds most of the books published in the United States. It also has amazing collections of photographs, maps and manuscripts. Many of the photos from the Library of Congress can be viewed on Flickr.com. The library was established 208 years ago in 1800 by President John Adams. To read more about it go here to the history section of the LOC webpage.
