Book Clubs

This week I speak with Claudia Strange from the Atlanta Fulton Public Library about their on-going community conversations on the library's renovation program.  She explains that some renovations are being completed and some are just getting started. 

The Local Take: Real Dads Read

Feb 25, 2017

This week on The Local Take we speak with Kenneth Braswell from Fathers Incorporated about their new initiative REAL DADS READ. Research shows that when fathers participate in their children's education, helping with homework, their grades and test scores increase. Fathers play a critical role in the development of  literacy when they model the importance of reading and sharing stories.  

Braswell points out that we have mp3 children living with 8-Track parents and that technology can be challenging.
