Event Name:Boys, Books and Libraries: Making the Connection [Featured Archive]
Competency:Readers' Advisory
Description:Boys and books, boys and reading, boys and libraries, these are sometimes complicated relationships. How do we welcome boys into our libraries, engage them in reading, and connect them with the books that can make them avid, lifelong readers? Hear why this is sometimes so hard and what we can do about it from the librarian who has been at the front of the Boys’ Reading Movement for twenty years.
Michael Sullivan is the author of Raising Boy Readers, Connecting Boys with Books, Connecting Boys with Books 2: Closing the Reading Gap, Fundamentals of Children’s Services, the Escapade Johnson series of children's books, and The Sapphire Knight.  Along with being an author, Michael also hosts a popular and informative website “Boys & Books”.  He is a former president of the New Hampshire Library Association and was the 1998 New Hampshire Librarian of the Year. He has been awarded the U.S. Conference of Mayors City Livability Award and the Mom’s Choice Award for juvenile fiction. He is currently the Director of the Weare Public Library in New Hampshire.
School Library Journal writes that, “Sullivan… offers practical and reassuring advice on a range of topics, including how fathers influence what their sons read, what kind of physical environment fosters reading, and why reading large numbers of titles—even below grade level—is essential to making boys lifelong readers.”
