About “Reading Without Walls”
Former National Ambassador for Young People’s Literature Gene Luen Yang calls us all to read without walls, exploring books about characters who look or live differently than you, topics you haven’t discovered, or formats that you haven’t tried.
Reading Without Walls promotes diversity and opens readers’ eyes to new ideas and experiences. In this divided time in our nation’s history, Reading Without Walls is an inclusive way to spread appreciation and understanding for others — and to learn new and exciting things.
