How To Raise A Reader

In a world where so much is competing for a child’s attention,how do you raise a reader? Join us on Tuesday, March 10th at 7pm for a conversation and book signing with the authors of HOW TO RAISE A READER.  Written by two women who not only live and work in the world of books but are mothers of three children each (all of them very different kinds of readers), HOW TO RAISE A READER provides insider know-how to parents searching for the tools to instill a lifelong love of reading in their children, setting them up for success in the larger world. School is where children learn how to read. Home is where they can learn to love reading.
