WSW: Remembering Author Walter Dean Myers
Last year Walter Dean Myers came to Kalamazoo as part of a cross-country tour to promote literacy among young people.
Before his appearance at the Kalamazoo Public Library, Myers spoke to WMUK's Earlene McMichael. They discussed his unlikely journey, being raised by foster parents with limited education and becoming a best-selling author. Myers, who was also the 2012 Ambassador for Young People's Literature, also talked about encouraging young people to read.
