NPR Plus

Even though Michele Norris has stepped back from co-hosting the radio program, All Things Considered, until after the 2012 Presidential Campaign, she’s left behind a great idea: NPR’s Back-Seat Book Club.

Targeted to middle grade and junior high readers 9-14 years old, Norris was quoted as saying, “I wanted to do something special for our passive listeners, the so-called ‘prisoners of NPR’ who are listening because their parents listen…I wanted it to be interactive so that kids can develop a relationship with the authors they love.”

Hope you tune into this great idea!
