"CBC's Fresh Air recently assembled a reading panel of Ontario bookstore managers: Susan Chamberlain of The Book Keeper in Sarnia, Jean Begin of The Real Bookshelf in Thunder Bay and Itah Sadu of A Different Booklist in Toronto. All agreed that at times it may be challenging to get boys to read, but there are more books than ever that appeal to boys and parents should be encouraging them to discover the literature that's out there."-  informative audio discussion about boys and reading.

To Do Well In Life, You Have To 'Read Well'

"Author Walter Dean Myers is the nation's latest ambassador for young people's literature. The two-year post is something like a youth version of poet laureate. As a young man in Harlem, Myers hid his books so no one would know he liked to read. David Greene talks to Myers about his appointment and what he wants to accomplish."

 

Includes audio of interview with Walter Dean Myers.
