Jacqueline Woodson Named National Ambassador for Young People’s Literature some of the best conversationalists in our country — our young people.” Established in 2008, the National Ambassador for Young People’s Literature program highlights the importance of young people’s literature as it relates to lifelong literacy, education, and the development and betterment of the lives of young people.

On Thursday, January 4, the Children’s Book Council, Every Child a Reader, and the Library of Congress announced that author Jacqueline Woodson will serve as the 2018–2019 National Ambassador for Young People’s Literature. Jacqueline Woodson, the author of more than two dozen books for young adults, middle graders, and children, is a National Book Award winner for her memoir-in-verse, Brown Girl Dreaming (Nancy Paulsen Books); a four-time Newbery Honor Medalist; a Coretta Scott King Book Award winner; and in 2015 was named the Young People’s Poet Laureate by the Poetry Foundation. “I think the work ahead of me is challenging,” Woodson said. “I don’t believe there are ‘struggling’ readers, ‘advanced’ readers, or ‘non’ readers. I’d love to walk away from my two years as ambassador with the qualifiers gone and young people able to see themselves beyond stigma or oft-times debilitating praise. Martin Luther King Jr. said people should not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character. In that regard, I think young people should not be judged by the level of their reading but by the way a book makes them think and feel. By the way it gives them hope. By the way it opens them up to new perspectives and changes them. I’m excited to have these conversations with

Over the course of her two-year term, Woodson will travel across the country to promote her platform, READING = HOPE x CHANGE (What’s Your Equation?), which encourages young people to think about — and beyond — the moment they’re living in, the power they possess, and the impact reading can have on showing them ways in which they can create the hope and the change they want to see in the world. Previous National Ambassadors include authors Jon Scieszka (2008–2009), Katherine Paterson (2010–2011), Walter Dean Myers (2012–2013), Kate DiCamillo (2014–2015), and Gene Luen Yang (2016–2017). An inauguration ceremony, which is free and open to the public, took place on January 9 at the Library of Congress’ Thomas Jefferson Building in Washington, D.C. “We are delighted that Jacqueline Woodson has agreed to be the new National Ambassador for Young People’s Literature,” said Librarian of Congress Carla Hayden, who presided over the ceremony. “I have admired Jacqueline Woodson’s work for years, especially her dedication to children and young adult literature. The Library of Congress looks forward to Jacqueline’s tenure of encouraging young readers to embrace reading as a means to improve the world.”
