TRW Tribute: Cecil Castellucci 10:30


"I know what I loved about reading when I was a teenager was that it made me feel grown up. I could travel anywhere, be anyone, and do anything. I loved that freedom and exploring those worlds. Teen Read Week is a great celebration of that, and a great reminder to teens that those voyages are there for the taking, right inside a book."
