School Library Journal interviews Steven Layne

December 14th, 2009

I want teachers and librarians to raise their voices together loud and long and demand that the ‘will’ of reading be given a measure of time and attention in the curriculum. It’s always been the neglected stepchild, but now it’s being shoved under the rug completely in some schools.

Diane Chen just posted an interview with Steven Layne, author of the new book Igniting a Passion for Reading, on her blog Practically Paradise at SLJ.com. Steven answers questions on a wide variety of topics including separating reading lounges from school libraries, genres that are most neglected in choosing read-alouds, and author studies.

Igniting a Passion for Reading starts shipping from our warehouse on Monday, and you can preview the entire text online now!
