National Ambassador Gene Luen Yang on Inclusive Reading

Yang believes that the key to creating a more diverse and inclusive society lies in “Reading Without Walls.”

A piece of the solution is empathy. I think encouraging people to read about others who aren’t like them, and I think especially encouraging boys to read about girls is important. You see girls wearing Superman and Batman T-shirts all the time. You almost never see boys wearing Wonder Woman. I think heroism in any form should be celebrated. (The Daily Dot)
