In her memoir, "Read or Die: A Story of Survival, Hope and How a Life Was Saved One Book at a Time," Daphne Russell recounts her journey as a middle-school reading teacher in Tucson. In 2007, a friend told her to read "The Book Thief" by Markus Zusak which completely rerouted her teaching trajectory. The following school year she began teaching as though books save lives and has never wavered from that mission. She lives in Tucson.
