Reading Without Walls

Major Interview with the National Ambassador for Young People’s Literature

NEW YORK, NY, USA, December 28, 2016 /EINPresswire.com/ -- A long-awaited interview with Gene Luen Yang, the National Ambassador for Young People’s Literature, aired on the PBS Newshour right before the holidays on December 22.

You can view the full clip here, in which Gene talks about his vision for Reading Without Walls, a concept he’s developed to encourage children and teens to read a book that’s a window into other lives and cultures, not a mirror of their own. Yang is also an advocate for the enjoyment of graphic novels and the learning of computer coding skills by young people.

Gene Yang is in his second year as the National Ambassador for Young People’s Literature, a program sponsored by the Library of Congress and Every Child a Reader. A national Reading Without Walls Challenge will be offered across America in April 2017.
