“I think what people need to realize is that not only do they have a story, but they have a right to tell that story. And the more specific that story is, the more it’s going to speak to a lot of people.”

Wise words from brilliant National Book Award winner, Jacqueline Woodson. Watch her phenomenal interview—her “books as windows, not mirrors” metaphor is so powerful. We had a blast meeting her, and could’ve listened to her talk for hours! #keepreading
