Westchester Library System Author Talk

Westchester Library System Author Talk

Thursday, January 28

7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Combining clear, practical advice with inspiration, wisdom, tips, and curated reading lists, How to Raise a Reader shows you how to instill the joy and time-stopping pleasure of reading. Divided into four sections, from baby through teen, and each illustrated by a different artist, this book offers something useful on every page, whether it’s how to develop rituals around reading or build a family library, or ways to engage a reluctant reader.

The book talk topic (lifelong literacy) is a fabulous start to this new online book talk series; especially in the context of all the challenges facing parents amidst the pandemic school realities.
