RT: What do consider your best book to date and why?

LM: Yes, I have a favorite novel, and it's a secret.

RT: What can attendees at IRA Chicago expect to hear from you?

LM: I've already been speaking to kids, teachers, and librarians about reluctant readers, and I look forward to discussing my findings.
