April 27, 2006// Writer/poet Martin Goldberg today announced the launch of
www.Leonardoscode57.com, a website inspired by the internationally bestselling book and upcoming major motion picture The Da Vinci Code. The website launch also commemorates the 554th anniversary of Leonardo da Vinci’s birthday, which passes each year on April 15.
Goldberg, 48, has read about 500 non-fiction books in the last 15 years covering topics from ancient philosophy and history to modern astronomy and physics. For Goldberg, one book stands out among the rest: The Da Vinci Code by Dan Brown.
"The Da Vinci Code is a classic work of pulp fiction," Goldberg said. "While many criticize Mr. Brown, one Da Vinci Code fact is certain – this pulp fiction novel has entertained and informed millions of people worldwide, causing many to consider these mysteries for the first time and think about their faith for themselves."
The centerpiece of Goldberg’s site is the 26-stanza poem he penned that addresses various subjects made popular worldwide by The Da Vinci Code. A second poem posted on the site offers a clever and entertaining take on the upcoming movie.
