Boys and Girls and Reading, Oh My!
I've been working on my annotated bibliography about books Boys and Girls would like but it seems to be turning more into a Connecting with Boys type of thing. If I do library programming for boys, will girls come too? It doesn't work the other way around. Will girls enjoy programming geared towards guys? Specifically, teenagers? I'm thinking along the young adult 11-14 sort. I don't know if middle school boys and high school boys enjoy the same type of reading. I am going to check Novelist to see what sort of suggestions they have. I have a 15 book list but I'm worried that a couple of them will appeal to guys only or girls only.
