If you're in my approximate age range, you definitely grew up watching Reading Rainbow with LeVar Burton. I definitely remember watching PBS after school, finding out about new books, and just enjoying Burton's relaxing tone and delivery.

If you're a bit older than me you remember him from Roots, and if you're a bit geekier than me you know him from Star Trek: The Next Generation.

Well, if you were as much of a bookworm as I was as a kid, you'll be excited to know that LeVar Burton has his own podcast called "LeVar Burton Reads", and he is currently on a speaking tour.

I know it's short notice, but he'll be at the Scottish Rite Auditorium in Collingswood tonight! Tickets are still available.
