Description
Part memoir and part guide for starting your own book club, "Men Don't Read: The Unlikely Story of the Guys Book Club" tells the compelling tale of one library book group. It is an examination of why we read, the importance of talking about what we read, and the future of reading in our society, particularly for men and boys. During his early years working as a public librarian, Andy Wolverton heard the same sentence over and over: "Men don't read." He knew that statement was wrong and set about to disprove it, primarily by starting a book club for adult men and teenage guys. This is the story of a book club nobody thought would last, yet after more than 10 years, the group is still going strong.
