Bono & Ruth Graham Bell

READING IS FUNDAMENTAL: In what’s sure to become a fan photo favorite, Bono is shown at right reading the poetry of Seamus Heaney to Ruth Graham Bell in the days immediately after U2’s big night at the 2002 Grammy Awards in February. The photo appears in the May, 2002, edition of Decision magazine, which is published by the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association. The caption above reads: “After receiving four Grammy awards, Bono, of the legendary rock group U2, visited Ruth Bell Graham. Bono, a professing Christian, read to Mrs. Graham the works of poet laureate Seamus Heaney, winner of the 1995 Nobel Prize in Literature.” (Great thanks to Lissie for the photo and info.!)
