On Reading, Writing, and Difference-Making

For many of us, it's felt like the past two years have been filled with increasingly-dark political days. It can be difficult to know where to turn, to find what—if anything—can make a dent, can turn a tide. In stories, readers see characters who do the right thing—and the wrong. Particularly as young readers, we learn how to foster empathy, to step outside of ourselves and into others' shoes.
