The library recently hosted Michael Sullivan, author of Connecting Boys With Books: What Libraries Can Do; Connecting Boys With Books 2: Closing the Reading Gap & Raising BoyReaders in addition to many other books.
While at WNPL, Mr. Sullivan used stories and anecdotes to convey an understanding of the differences that are common among many boys and how these differences can affect reading. He also shared a list of recommended reads to share with the boys (and girls!) in your life.
His list is provided here. Check it out for some great reads!
