Librarian conference focuses on enticing reluctant readers to read
Anonymous Patron writes "The Washington Observer Reporter has some coverage of the American Association of School Librarians conference held at David Lawrence Convention Center in Pittsburgh. Wednesday through Sunday. "To not acknowledge graphic novels, particularly Japanese comics, is self-defeating," Jones said, adding that the series of Simpson comics also should be on school library shelves. Shorter works, such as Tupac Shakur's poetry collection, "The Rose that Grew from Concrete," have proven popular among readers with short attention spans."
