Like Booker T. Washington’s Up from Slavery, Frederick Douglass’s earlier autobiography speaks to the power of education. Though he is a slave for most of his life, Douglass learns the freedom and influence that come from knowledge, particularly literacy. Readers follow Douglass’s life as he pursues his freedom.

How to Coax Your New Book to Lay Flat

Place the book with its back on a table.

Open the front cover.

Then open the back cover.

Open a few pages in the front, gently pressing along the spine.

Then open a few pages at the back of the book in the same way.

Continue opening pages, alternating between the front and back, until the book is fully open. Gently press along the center spine.

You may need to repeat this process two or three times to limber up the binding. Never force the spine or handle your book roughly as that may break the back and cause pages to (eventually) come loose.
