About the Author
Michael Shaffer spent just over 25 years as an elementary school principal who developed a boys' book club with over 100 boys who would skip recess to hang out with him to talk about books, and a Boys Read section of the library to facilitate the ease of book choice and access for boys. He has traveled all over the country speaking about getting boys to read. Ruth Jefferson has had an extensive career as a reading teacher and professor who specialized in the tough cases - those boys who were considered the most difficult to reach and teach to read. Her reading intervention work has literally made it possible for hundreds of boys and girls to master the art of reading, and for teachers-in-training and in-service professionals to gain skills in the art of literacy development.
