At a recent program event at theKing County Library System, author Jason Reynolds said that as a young Black person, he wanted to read things in books that were familiar to him, and about people who looked like him. Jo Anderson, the social impact coordinator from the library system tells that story as an example of why they curate lists of books for events like Black History Month.
"We try to highlight varied stories that offer a cross-section of culture and lived experience," Anderson said.
