Great Article on the Challenging -- and Fulfilling -- Job of Engaging New Black and Hispanic Readers

Hello All,

I just read an interesting article in the School Library Journal.  The link is:  http://www.slj.com/2012/10/literacy/time-after-time-self-published-memoirs-about-gangs-drugs-and-renewal-offer-hope-to-troubled-teens-2/

It is written from a librarian's perspective, but the author is also an educator, and she skillfully illustrates some of the very real challenges that educators face when searching for material that will catch a new readers attention and engage them in a story that makes them want to continue to read.
