NCTE Article on WDM

The November issue of The Council Chronicle, published by NCTE, carries a feature on WDM titled “A Labor of Love”. Myers states that his stories are encouraging to kids and teens from troubled backgrounds “who look for characters like themselves in books.” He said, “There will be some kids who will find a voice in what I’m saying to them. There will be some whose lives will be validated because I’ve included them.” As the Library of Congress’s National Ambassador for Young People’s Literature, Myers works to promote reading and literacy especially among “poor kids and kids in urban areas.”
