“Childhood can be a golden age no matter where it is spent.” –Michael Dirda

Self-professed bookworm Michael Dirda grew up in the industrial city of Lorain, Ohio, also the hometown of Nobel Prize-winning author Toni Morrison.

Throughout his traditional working-class family upbringing in the 1950s and 1960s, Dirda relied on books to educate, inform and entertain himself. Though his voracious reading earned him good grades in school and a college scholarship, it also formed in him an appreciation for books and authors that would determine his career path.

Dirda has been a writer and senior editor for “The Washington Post Book World” for more than 25 years. He writes a Sunday column about books, from new-book reviews to reflections on neglected masterpieces. His work earned him the 1993 Pulitzer Prize for distinguished criticism.
