    The one that I stuck with

    How are you doing with your New Year’s resolutions?

        Conroy’s latest work gives valuable insight

        It’s been said that you can get a quick fix on someone by seeing what he or she reads. Editor Don Whitten points out that’s not always easy to do, but is with one of the South’s favorite authors, Pat Conroy, whose latest book, “My Reading Life,” takes readers on a trip through his library and education to see how and why Conroy writes as he does.

              It’s story time

              Going beyond the idea of one-time guest readers, first-grade teacher Lillie Fay Young has recruited a cadre of regulars who each get to share story time with her students every other week. The program’s climax: At the end of the year, the adult readers gather as the children take a turn reading to them. (January 29, 2010, Page 1B)
