Today, in the Living Arts section of The Boston Globe, David Mehegan writes about the challenge of getting boys to read and introduces Peggy Hogan and Steven Hil, cofounders of Flying Point Press, which publishes nonfiction books for boys ages 10 to 15.
Mehegan writes interesting feature stories about literature and publishing on a regular basis for The Globe. Importantly, those articles appear in the Style/Living Arts section and so reach a far broader audience than if they were published in the Sunday book pages of the paper. Anytime anyone in the media gets literary, literacy, and/or library information "beyond the choir," we should applaud their efforts. So hurrah David Mehegen! Hurrah Boston Globe!
