What does a journalist do when he retires following a long and storied career that includes 25 years as sports editor for the Los Angeles Times? In Bill Dwyre’s case, he starts a publishing company.
When Dwyre was a boy, he loved to read. The Hardy Boys and Chip Hilton (two popular series for young readers of that era) topped his list of favorites.
“But kids today don’t read as much as they used to,” Dwyer says. “I have grandchildren who are 14 and 12. They’re smart kids, good students. But they spend too much time on their devices. I’m afraid that children will stop picking up books and reading. And I’d like to do my part to see that doesn’t happen.”
