"Connecting Boys with Books"
presented by Michael Sullivan
Tuesday, March 26 at 7 p.m.

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. Reading is important both to function in our ever-changing world, and to get the most out of life. Find out how boys become non-readers, and why. Discover what the consequences are for boys, and what we can do to save boys from lives without reading. Presented by Michael Sullivan, professor, author, librarian, storyteller, former program leader at the Boston Museum of Science, and author of Connecting Boys with Books 2:Closing the Reading Gap and the Escapade Johnson series of children’s books.

Michael Sullivan brings more than fifteen years experience as a Children’s Librarian and Library Director, storyteller, chess teacher, and author of the book "Connecting Boys With Books" ( ALA , 2003), "Connecting Boys With Books 2: Closing the Reading Gap" ( ALA , 2009) and The Fundamentals of Children’s Services ( ALA , 2005). He will share practical, proven, and sometimes off-beat suggestions on how to turn boys into life-long readers.
