Connecting Boys With Books
At the Clapp Memorial Library
Friday, March 22nd
6:00 PM

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,

 what the consequences are for boys, and what we can do to save boys from lives as non-readers.
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. 


Thanks to funding from the Friends of Clapp Memorial Library,   

we are hosting this important presentation by Michael Sullivan, who is on tour from   

Oklahoma. Registration is suggested, 323-0417 ext.2
