“Reading Without Walls” will be an informal conversation between Mr. Yang and Dr. Hayden about their own personal histories as readers and the role that reading can play in breaking down barriers. They will also discuss Gene Luen Yang’s new Reading Without Walls program, which encourages students to read books that they wouldn’t typically choose on their own.

“Reading Without Walls” will take place on Monday, April 10 at 10 AM EDT, and will be streamed live at this URL:
