Boys With Books
At the Clapp Memorial Library
Friday, March 22nd
Boys are in trouble. All right, it seems boys are always
in trouble, but this is serious. Boys are failing to read at an alarming rate. Find out how we lose boys, and why,
the consequences are for boys, and what we can do to save boys from lives as
Michael Sullivan brings more than fifteen years experience as a Children’s Librarian and Library Director, storyteller, chess teacher, and author of the books such as Connecting Boys With Books ( ALA , 2003) and
Connecting Boys With Books 2: Closing the Reading Gap ( ALA , 2009). He will share practical, proven, and sometimes off-beat suggestions on how to turn boys into life-long readers.
If there is a boy in your life you need to come to this workshop. Parents, grandparents, teachers, librarians and school administrators
won't want to miss this great opportunity.
