National Ambassador for Young People's Literature Goes on Tour

Meg Medina, the National Ambassador for Young People’s Literature, is kicking off her national tour this spring and summer. The first two stops will be free-to-attend public events at Calcasieu Parish Public Library in Lake Charles Louisiana, on May 9, and at Newburgh Free Library in Newburgh, New York, on June 13. Medina will also visit the local school in those communities.

She “aims to emphasize books and stories as a part of everyday life, encourage story sharing and conversation among friends and within families, and to highlight libraries as a welcoming place for families to explore, learn and connect,” the Library of Congress states. “Medina’s tour will engage readers through her initiative Cuéntame!: Let’s talk books. Inspired by the Spanish phrase that friends and families use when catching up with one another, Cuéntame! builds connection in classrooms, libraries, communities and within families.”

The fall tour dates will be announced in the coming weeks. For more information, read the press release.
