Are you spending Valentine’s Day with a bibliophile? For one man, he wants a girl “with passion, wit, and dreams… So I want a girl who reads.”
The video embedded above features a recitation of a poem called “Girls Who Read.” Roundhouse, a London-based art studio, uploaded the video onto their YouTube channel. Back in November 2013, the video went viral drawing more than 3 million views.
Poet Mark Grist created the poem and performed the reading featured in this video. Filmmaker Guy Larsen served as the director. Larsen wrote two blog posts showcasing behind-the-scenes photos. What do you think?
