Be a Part of GLW
Colleen from Chasing Ray is in charge of the project. If you or anyone you know (parents, ask your sons; librarians and booksellers, ask your patrons; teachers, ask your students) would like to participate in the GLW blog, please email colleen(at)chasingray(dot)com or leave a message at her blog.
As regular readers of the Bildungsroman blog know, I'm actively involved in readergirlz. I run their website and head up the postergirlz advisory council. Guys Lit Wire and readergirlz are not directly connected, but they do support each other, and each project actively encourages BOTH genders to read and participate in book discussions.
The Birth of GuysLitWire
How did this all come about? First, Sara Lewis Holmes went to the store to get a book for her son. She also had a conversation with her husband about books for boys, partially inspired by Colleen's post at Chasing Ray. Then Sara posted about it some more. aquafortis came up with the name GuysLitWire and created a design for the blog. After Colleen posted about it again, things started moving forward - and here we are now.
