Jason Reynolds is an award-winning author and National Ambassador for Young People's Literature. This hour, Jason speaks with Manoush about reaching kids through stories that let them feel understood.

Host Manoush Zomorodi and her guest, National Ambassador for Young People’s Literature Jason Reynolds, kick off the conversation with a look at Jason’s writing and impactful work with kids. He shares his journey from childhood through the start of his writing career.

Host Manoush Zomorodi and author Jason Reynolds continue their conversation about Jason's path to becoming a New York Times bestselling author, despite nearly giving up on writing in his early 20s. Jason also reads a selection from his book Long Way Down, which he says is a call for empathy for children and their experiences.

Host Manoush Zomorodi ends her conversation with author Jason Reynolds with a look at the work he does as National Ambassador for Young People's Literature, and a special announcement from the Library of Congress.
