These Three Words

Jason Reynolds will discuss the three words he keeps at the forefront of his mind when writing stories for young people. They serve as his compass to ensure the stories connect and feel like true representations of young life, leading to a more engaged reading.

Jason is an American author who writes novels and poetry for young adult and middle-grade audiences, including Ghost, a National Book Award Finalist for Young People’s Literature.

His books have received numerous awards including but not limited to:  Coretta Scott King for Ghost (2016), Schneider Family Award (2017) for As Brave as You, Printz Honor and Newbery Honor (2017) for Long Way Down. His latest book, Look Both Ways, will be released October 2019.

The lecture is free and open to the public. Registration is used for planning purposes.
