Reading Without Walls Challenge

National Ambassador of Young People’s Literature, Gene Luen Yang, has issued a challenge to all readers to read without walls in one of the three ways below.

1. Read a book about a character who doesn’t look like you or live like you.

2. Read a book about a topic you don’t know much about.

3. Read a book in a format that you don’t normally read for fun. This might be a chapter book, a graphic novel, a book in verse, a picture book, or a hybrid book.
