Books for Guys
Encouraging Young Men to Read

How do we encourage more reading in young men? It might be no more complicated than pointing them toward books that describe situations and characters with whom they can identify, or which offer an aura of excitement and adventure along with solid literary content.

Authors of "street literature" have won wide acclaim in recent years for their naturalistic portrayals of urban life, and some have found themselves included in the literary canon. Under discussion will be the work of Chester Himes, Walter Mosley, and George Pelecanos.
