myON Gives Students Special Access to New James Patterson Book
Teaming up with digital literacy platform myON to encourage students to read this summer, author James Patterson is offering special access to his latest book, Treasure Hunters, to all students using myON. Treasure Hunters is one of more than 7,000 titles that students can access through the site's digital library.
Patterson, author of the Middle School series and creator of ReadKiddoRead, a site that encourages parents to help their kids find books they love, is a longstanding supporter of children's literacy. To further encourage students to get reading during the summer and beyond, Patterson filmed a public service announcement and will be featured on Education Talk Radio for a 30-minute segment. Patterson will also partner with myON in inviting students, teachers and parents to participate in myON's first national book talk on September 15, during which he will answers questions submitted online by student readers.
Todd Brekhus, President of myON, commented, "We are thrilled that our more than 4 million readers will now have access to books from James Patterson; it is our highest priority to provide each of them with books that not only challenge but entertain them as well."
