Gene Luen Yang: National Ambassador for Young People's Literature


Gene Luen Yang, the Bay-Area-based, newly-appointed National Ambassador for Young People's Literature, asks you to:


1. Read a book with someone on the cover who doesn’t look like you or live like you. Books are a great way to get to know people who are different from us. By reading other people’s stories, we can develop insight and compassion.

2. Read a book about a topic that you find intimidating. My pet project in this area is promoting books about science, technology, engineering, and math. Often, people think of stories and science as completely separate, but they’re not. Stories are a great way to learn science.

3. Read a book in a format that you’ve never tried before. If you only read books with words, give a graphic novel a try. If you only read graphic novels, try a prose novel, a novel in verse, or a hybrid (half graphic, half prose) novel.


Check out this website for more information about Gene Luen Yang and his books:
