Hello, Williamsburg! Today, February 1st, is the official start of Black History Month — and it’s Day 2 of our African American Read-In. Here’s what’s in store:
Jason Reynolds is an award winning, New York Times bestselling author who hated to read as a student. In today’s interview from CBS news, Reynolds discusses his newest book, Long Way Down, and gets a surprise visit from his literary inspiration — actor, singer, and celebrity talk show host, Queen Latifah!
We hope it will inspire a good conversation about the importance of diverse literature in our society.
