PA – Reading Without Walls Lecture

The Doylestown Bookshop and Holicong Middle School are excited to welcome Gene Luen Yang, the National Ambassador of Young People’s Literature, to Holicong Middle School on Sunday, April 2 2017 at 6:00 PM. You must register for the event at the link. Admission is free.

The author will be giving a presentation followed by a Q&A. The author’s books will be available for sale at the event. He will be signing books at the event.

About Reading without Walls:

Initiated as a pilot program at the time Gene Luen Yang was appointed National Ambassador of Young People’s Literature, Reading Without Walls, a program to expand the range of books that children read, will launch and become an annual event beginning in April.

Reading Without Walls is designed to “celebrate reading and diversity” and encourage children to read books outside of their personal experience, books they might not have considered before. Structured as an educational challenge, the program encourages children to “read a book about a character who doesn’t look like you,” or to read “a book about a topic you don’t know much about,” or “a book in a format that they don’t normally read for fun, such as a chapter book, an audio book, a graphic novel, or a book in verse.” Once a challenge is completed children receive certificates and other rewards that mark their literary achievement.

In an interview with PW, Yang, a MacArthur “Genius” Fellow, who has had two graphic novels nominated for National Book Awards in Young People’s Literature, said that “[Reading Without Walls] started last January as an experimental pilot when I was appointed National Ambassador. Schools and libraries and bookstores put up displays and issued challenges. We want to make it easier for them.” Yang said the pilot program has led to the design of certificates of participation, posters, activity kits, puzzles, and other materials to promote the reading program.

“I announced Reading Without Walls program at the National Book Festival [last fall] with a speech on social media. People really ran with it and we’ve gotten a lot of feedback. Now we’re finalizing the program and supplying a lot of formal materials to teachers, retailers, and librarians that will help them get involved.”

Yang said that feedback from the pilot program has helped to expand the program to “reading in other languages. We’ll also have kits that encourage children to create their own poetry, novels and comics. We’re taking [the program] from reading without walls, to encouraging kids to make their own stories, outside of their walls.”

The program is a partnership with the Center for the Book at the Library of Congress, Every Child a Reader, the Children’s Book Council, and Macmillan Children’s Publishing Group.

About Gene Yang:
Gene Yang is the cartoonist behind books including the Printz-Award-winning American Born Chinese, as well as Boxers & Saints, The Eternal Smile, Prime Baby, and Animal Crackers. He is the co-creator of The Shadow Hero with Sonny Liew, and Secret Coders with Mike Holmes, and has written for the hit comics Avatar: The Last Airbender and Superman. Gene Yang lives in the San Francisco Bay Area.
