Amid dual national crises of a pandemic and outrage over racism and police brutality, books provide opportunities both to learn more and to find distraction from reality. Jeffrey Brown talks to writer Jason Reynolds, the Library of Congress’ ambassador for young people’s literature, about summer reading lists for youth that fit the current moment. It’s part of our arts and culture series, Canvas.
