Walter Dean Myers at the CCJDC!

On March 26th, Walter Dean Myers visited the Champaign County Juvenile Detention Center to deliver a powerful talk about the importance of reading. He told stories, talked about his writing process, and gave a sneak peek at some of the characters in the book he is currently writing. He then took 30 minutes of questions from residents of the JDC. All of the residents received signed copies of Myers’ memoir Bad Boy.

Myers’ talk was made possible by the Center For Children’s Books.ImageConnie Kaiser, Superintendent of the Champaign County Juvenile Detention Center, with Walter Dean Myers.
