Reading is NOT optional!
Walter Dean Myers, a very distinguished author, has been selected as the new National Ambassador for Young People’s Literature. He has replaced Katherine Paterson who served in this honorable position since 2010. Before that Jon Scieszka held the position first. The terms are for 2 years. His job will be to raise awareness about the importance of reading.
