The New York Times has published a video of Pamela talking with James (“Maximum Ride”) Patterson and Rick (“Percy Jackson and the Olympians”) Riordan about how to get kids, especially boys, to read.
Pamela reviews picture books on sibling rivalry over at the New York Times.

Pamela has written almost countless pieces in the last month or so. I will call out two — a piece in the New York Times style section about the death of the telephone that got massive attention (magazine articles, radio, television, etc.), and a piece in today’s paper about recent research that older parents are happier than younger ones. The study does not reveal whether this is because they have achieved a state of zen about the inconvenience of children, or whether it’s because as you get older, the kids graduate from school and move away.
