Jean-Yves ThibaudetMon. Oct. 28th - Discussion of "How To Raise A Reader" with NYT Book Review Editor, Pamela Paul 

Join us Monday October 28th for an engaging talk by Pamela Paul, editor of the New York Times Book Review, on her recently released book, "How To Raise A Reader," with tips for encouraging reading for children from babies to teens.  Paul will also discuss the work of the NYT Book Review and books in general for a fascinating evening.

In a world where so much is competing for a child's attention, how do you raise a reader? 

It's an accepted fact that reading is crucial to kids.  Study after study shows that babies and toddlers thrive intellectually and emotionally when they're read to, and that books help children of every age expand their language skills and comprehension of the world, boost their critical thinking and imagination, build empathy and strengthen bonds with caregivers.

At the same time, reading can be a source of stress for parents: "Which books should I read to my baby, and how early?  Is my child reading soon enough, fast enough, in an advanced enough way?  How can I teach my child to prioritize books over screens? Is it too late to get a teenager into reading?
