Jon Scieszka is now retired from his post as National Ambassador for Young People's Literature.
Thank you for all your work as an author. He wanted to get people to read and he succeeded! Checkout Time Warp Trio or Trucktown or his collaborations with Lane Smith. I would highly recommend Knucklehead: Tall Tales and Almost True Stories of Growning Up Scieszka. Read more about Jon on his websites: Jon Scieszka Worldwide and Guys Read.
The Library of Congress will announce the new National Ambassador for Young People's Literature soon! So keep your ears open to the news!
