Jason Reynolds on the importance of children's literature

| E:170

On today's episode, Adam chats with Jason Reynolds about his powerful children's and YA books including Long Way Down, Ghost, and Patina. They discuss the stories from his life that inspire his books and why he gets angry when people say he's "Just a children's book author."

Jason's books are beyond inspiring and his attitude towards young readers is so wonderful. You'll love this discussion and we cannot recommend his books highly enough!
