Pauline Kael | Writer's Workshop

Pauline Kael
(June 19, 1919 – September 3, 2001)

"Reading is probably about the most important thing a writer can do. Certainly as important as living, which is always talked about—but living doesn't do you any harm either." Looking back on her personal history as a writer, Kael offers some useful advice for aspiring screenwriters, and she has some strong views on the connection between writing and reading.
