An award-winning, nonprofit organization that celebrates the powerful impact books have on young people
Both students and faculty at the Solebury School in Pennsylvania have adopted National Ambassador for Young People’s Literature Gene Luen Yang’s Reading Without Walls Challenge — encouraging readers of all ages to pick up a book that is unlike their usual reading.
Leading the way, Solebury’s head of school has pledged to read a book that students feel will expand his reading horizons. Here he is reading their selection: Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone by J.K. Rowling.
The school-wide challenge will culminate with a party and book discussion in early January 2017.
