Uncommon Giving- James Patterson: Giving Kids a Lifelong Love of Reading
On Sunday, November 18th, Chicke Fitzgerald interviewed the “king of publishing” live from the Miami Book Fair International. The interview centers on James Patterson’s work with kids and instilling a lifelong love of reading.
From his James Patterson Pageturner Awards to his website ReadKiddoRead.com to his regular donations of thousands of books to troops overseas.
He started writing books for kids and in 2008 launched his youth-focused website, when he noticed that his son, Jack, was lukewarm toward books. Patterson is now on a mission to make all children life-long readers.
ReadKiddoRead.com is dedicated to helping parents find books that will get their kids reading.From his James Patterson Pageturner Awards (which rewarded groups and individuals for creative and effective ways of spreading the joy of reading) to his website ReadKiddoRead.com
(which helps adults find books that kids are sure to love) to his regular donations of thousands of books to troops overseas, Patterson is a lifelong champion of books and reading.
In Patterson’s latest of the series: MERRY CHRISTMAS, ALEX CROSS, the Cross character is a hero for our time, and never more so than in this story of family, action, and the deepest moral choices. It will be a holiday classic for years to come.
