Julius Lester Drops In

It’s always a great day when a literary giant visits Reader To Reader.

Julius Lester, author of 43 books and recipient of numerous awards, dropped in to donate copies of a number of his books, including five copies each of Let's Talk About Race and Guardian.

Lester’s awards include the Newberry Honor Medal, the Lewis Carroll Shelf Award, National Book Award Finalist, National Jewish Book Award Finalist, National Book Critics Circle Award Finalist, Boston Globe/Horn Book Award, and the Coretta Scott King Award.

In addition to the book donation he also had kind words about our work.

"Bringing books and readers together is, in my opinion, holy work. Reader To Reader does such work quietly and effectively. Thank you." -- Julius Lester
