"The New Mexico Humanities Council supports the Pulitzer Campfire Initiative because everybody should have the opportunity to read and enjoy good novels," said Dr. Craig Newbill, executive director of the New Mexico Humanities Council.
"Reading fosters emotional intelligence and enhances social and personal interactions,"Newbill said."The best literature provides for valuable experiences and personal growth. It is enjoyable and personally rewarding to read really good books and share details about life. It is pleasing and not just a theoretical activity."
