Author James Patterson is a favorite of many students here at DCG MS--and he was named teen author of the year last year. School Library Journal recently interviewed him on a variety of topics, including his popular Maximum Ride series, the Daniel X series, and his Middle School books. All of these you can find here in our library! Click HERE to read the interview.
Patterson also talked about Read Kiddo Read, an organization that works to improve kids' reading skills and put good books into kids' hands.
Patterson had seen his own son Jack struggle with reading, so this organization grew out of his desire to help his own son and others like him find good books and eventually enjoy reading. At the website, you can search for a variety of books and find recommendations, too. You can also see Sneak Peaks and read chapters of books before you can buy them!
