On Wednesday, October 16, The College of New Jersey will host a very special event—Jacqueline Woodson, ‘New York Times’ bestselling author and the current Library of Congress National Ambassador for Young People’s Literature, will be speaking to students both in person and via live webstream around the country. The focus of Jacqueline’s presentation will be her inspirational ‘Reading = HOPE x CHANGE’ program, and Wil is going to act as on-stage moderator. Wil has been the moderator and host at numerous literary events, including the annual ‘Letters About Literature’ award held by the New Jersey Center for the Book, as well the more than 200 school appearances as an author.
Along with her talk, Jacqueline will respond to questions both from attendees and those submitted via online forums. If you wish to participate in this wonderful event via livestream, please visit—
