Library of Congress Ambassador
hands reigns over to Walter Dean Myers.
Author Walter Dean Myers named new ambassador for youth literature
BY KELSI LOOS
WASHINGTON -- The Library of Congress on Tuesday named Walter Dean Myers, an award-winning author, the third national ambassador for young people's literature.
Myers, who credits reading with saving him from the pitfalls of a disadvantaged upbringing, began his professional writing career in 1969 with "Where Does the Day Go?" a picture book about a father-son trip to the park. He is perhaps best known for his young adult novels, including the New York Times bestseller "Monster" and "Somewhere in the Darkness," which won multiple awards, including the Newbery Honor and the Coretta Scott King award.
He now joins the previous ambassadors, Jon Scieszka and Katherine Paterson, in their quest to promote the importance of children's books and to encourage reading among youth. Both appeared with him at a ceremony Tuesday at the Library of Congress.
