“Tell Your Story” with Jason Reynolds

Author Jason Reynolds (Finalist for 2019 National Book Award for Young People’s Literature, Newbury Medal winner, NAACP Image Award winner and other honors) was awarded the honor of, National Ambassador for Young People’s Literature. In this role, he was scheduled for a tour to talk about his experiences as a writer, as well as his books. But like many events this year, his tour was derailed and cancelled due to the CoVid-19 virus. So he has taken to making videos that inspire young people to write and create stories, using their own experiences for inspiration. Write, Right. Rite., is a collection of interactive writing exercises –that can be watched in any order– that you can share with Jason Reynolds, himself, on his Instagram. These videos are accessible, every Tuesday and Thursday, through the Library of Congress website under the Grab the Mic” blog, or through his Instagram account.
