Description: 

An alarming number of adolescent boys are being labeled “reluctant readers.” We want them to read, how do we make that happen? Two Chicago-area authors, who double as public and school librarians, discuss ways to move boys to the “eager reader” category. The presenters represent populations (gay and African-American) that are traditionally under served. Attendees will receive information on sure-fire titles, proven strategies, and on-line resources to help match students with books and services.
