First Second Books Challenge you to Read Without Walls

Dear Readers, 

We're delighted to be launching Reading Without Walls this April -- a month-long, nation-wide program to promote diversity in reading, inspired by National Ambassador for Young People's Literature Gene Luen Yang and his ambassadorial platform. Thousands of schools, libraries, bookstores, and comics stores are joining in to help celebrate Reading Without Walls. 

This month, Gene is challenging us all to: 

Read a book about a character who doesn't look or live like you.

Read a book in a format you don't typically read -- graphic novels, poetry, audiobooks, plays.

Read a book about a new subject you don't know much about. 

And we'll be sharing our thoughts with the #readingwithoutwalls hashtag on social media.

We're so excited for this program! We hope you can join us in Reading Without Walls this April
