Reading = HOPE x CHANGE
Jacqueline Woodson, novelist, poet,
and the 2018-2019 National Ambassador for Young People’s Literature quotes,
“I definitely believe that reading can change us and shape us in so many ways, and through it we can be exposed to people and places and ideas that we might not otherwise come across or confront in real life. A platform about the importance of reading and having conversations across the lines of books is really important to me.”

One of my favorite books on Jacqueline’s list is The Arrival, by Shaun Tan (Arthur A. Levine Books, 9780439895293).
The masterful story about the experience of immigration is told without words in mysterious sepia drawings that are haunting, surreal and so beautiful.
