Virtual Author Visit: Jason Reynolds
Access & Features
- Open to the public
Jason Reynolds is the New York Times bestselling co-author of Stamped: Racism, Antiracism, and You, along with Ibram X. Kendi. Reynolds will discuss his book and answer questions from the audience.
In addition to his Newbery, Printz, and Edgar Awards, Reynolds was named as the Library of Congress’ national ambassador for young people’s literature in January 2020. Dr. Ibram X. Kendri thought him the perfect person to “remix” his book, Stamped From the Beginning, to reach a wider audience. After years of coaxing, Reynolds finally agreed, creating an “impressive and much-needed” book that draws a line from the first European slave traders to today’s Black Lives Matter movement.
Presented by William & Mary Libraries and Williamsburg Regional Library as part of the One Book One Community program, an initiative that brings together readers in Williamsburg, James City County, York County and William & Mary for a shared reading experience.
