This week, Jacqueline Woodson was named the new National Ambassador for Young People’s Literature! Rocco Staino of School Library Journal describes Woodson’s plans for her term:
Ambassadors identify a platform for their two-year term, and Woodson has selected the phrase READING = HOPE x CHANGE (What’s Your Equation?). During her tenure, Woodson will travel the country encouraging young people to think about—and beyond—the moment they’re living in, the power they possess, and the ways reading can help them create hope and change in the world.
