Walter Dean Myers on Literacy

Listen

(Duration: 8:19)

Walter Dean Myers is a giant of American young adult literature. He's won the Newberry Medal, and was a finalist for the National Book Awards three times. Myers' books are gritty and realistic, exploring a side of American life not often seen in kids books. Now Myers is the US Ambassador for Young People's Literature - his job is to travel America promoting literacy. Myers is coming to Champaign March 26th - he joins us to discuss developing good reading habits, and why literacy is so important for low income Americans.
