SORT BY Relevancy
Founded January 2004, WREEL Readers selected "Sisterhood Situation" by Janette McCarty Lourad as the first book for the group to read and discuss at its February 2004 meeting. "Sisterhood Situation" is based on the relationship of four very different women whose friendship remains true--blue as they face life, love, heartaches, and joy. This selection proved to be the most befitting as the group's first selection. WREEL Readers started with four members who remain loyal to the vision of enhancing and enriching our lives through literature.
WREEL Readers' membership has grown from four members to a nationwide literary community. We have members of all ages who share a passion for reading, lively group discussions, fun activities and new friends.

As a result, the Wall of Honor at the Veterans Memorial Park in McKinney, containing the names of 345 heroes, was dedicated on 11, 11, 2011.
"One Day as a Lion” was awarded the Silver Trophy at the 2009 North Texas Book Festival. In 2010, RD Foster was selected as Patriot of the Year by the Texas Veterans Commission. Currently, he is writing a book of true stories about the 345 names on the Wall of Honor.

Leave A Mark - With Your Readers Legacy!
My guest this Wednesday is Ken Dunn. Ken is not only an author of 4 books but he has created a new social media platform called Readers Legacy, a platform for authors and book lovers to come together. Joe Wikert, a legend in publishing, has said this about Readers Legacy, “ReadersLegacy.com is to GoodReads like Facebook was to MySpace.”.
ReadersLegacy.com is a 1 of a kind social media platform that gives book lovers a chance to build a virtual version of their home library. Everyone can have a free page, every author and publisher in the world can have a promo page, where they can load a video, and build a following. Authors will be able to advertise their books directly to people whose reading preferences are closely matched to their book.
The exciting part is that Ken has partnered with Ingram and Baker and Taylor for the new platform. Users will automatically be connected to millions of people and be able to build a following on the platform and market in mass, to those people.

An ‘e’ in front of any word changes our expectation of that item. eBooks exemplify that point… what makes an eBook a book and what makes it ‘e’lectronic? In pK-12 most learners have expectations of how they interact with these digital assets based on their home life and their familiarity with the Internet, browsers, and dynamically generated content. Here two cultures collide… the organized structure of school and the dynamic nature and expectations of digital assets. In this show we will discuss the tug-of-war between the the market requirements and the user expectations, the changing nature of those expectations, and the evolving technical and business challenges. The discussion should elucidate some of the key issues so you know what you’re getting into when you say “eBook ’em Danno!”
Guests at the table:

Michael Ross, Senior Vice President and General Manager of Education at Encyclopaedia Britannica

"I write for children and young adults, opening up hearts and minds and engaging both toward understanding and improving our complex world. Sometimes, getting lost in a good book can be just the thing we need to finally find ourselves." - Author Laurie Ann Thompson
Author Laurie Ann Thompson grew up in rural northern Wisconsin. A former software engineer, she now writes for children and young adults to help her readers--and herself--make better sense of the world we live in so they can contribute to making it a better place for all of us. She strives to write non-fiction that gives wings to active imaginations and fiction that taps into our universal human truths.
Laurie’s books include, "Be a Changemaker: How to Start Something That Matters," "Emmanuel’s Dream," a picture book biography about Emmanuel Ofosu Yeboah, who changed Ghana's perception of people with disabilities; and "My Dog is the Best," an adorable picture book about the unconditional love that exists between a child and a family pet.
