        Real Men Read

        Reading Specialist Marilu Bicknell in Glassboro, NJ was concerned by statistics showing that young boys are more interested in sports than books, so she created a literacy program to foster a love of reading among male students. Bicknell created the Real Men Read Literacy Project at the Thomas E. Bowe Elementary School in Glassboro. The program consists of regular breakfasts with men in the community (including alumni, the town's mayor, athletes, school janitors) and an afterschool book club for boys to explore various book genres with their peers.
