“Oh, magic hour, when a child first knows she can read printed words.”

Betty Smith,  A Tree Grows in Brooklyn

We have more in common with Betty’s Smith iconic A Tree Grows in Brooklyn than place alone.  LIU Brooklyn’s A.O.E. HEOP is a community that fosters the transformative power, not just of knowledge acquisition, but also of self-awareness.   It is a magical hour, again and again, when we see how critical engagement with what we learn expands the possibilities for our relationships with our selves, each other, and the world.

A Magical Hour is a blog site of the LIU Brooklyn HEOP Reading and Writing Specialist.  Expect to find links to and posts about useful reading and writing resources, information about events and opportunities, article redirects, and more.
