Take part in a awesome mind expanding reading initiative, Reading Without Walls with Gene Luen Yang, the Library of Congress’ National Ambassador for Young People’s Literature. This initiative takes place during the month of April and challenges you to read beyond your comfort zone to celebrate the overall diversity in books…whether it’s the character, the topic, or the design. This challenge is for all ages, and encourages you to pass the challenge along once you have completed it. For more information visit http://read.macmillan.com/mcpg/reading-without-walls/#challenge
