Reading Without Walls

During April, author Gene Luen Yang challenges readers, educators, librarians and booksellers to read outside of their walls by doing one (or all) of the following:
  • Read a book about a character who doesn't look or live like you.
  • Read a book about a topic you don't know much about.
  • Read a book in a format that you don't normally read for fun.
