Writers Against Racism: Matt de la Pena

I interviewed Matt for this W.A.R. series and I was happy to stumble upon this inspirational

video which speaks to some important issues facing our young people: growing up, bi-racial identity, wanting to be a basketball player, on being a writer, and more. It’s great for students of every ethnic background, and it’s also, real. 

Are any of Matt’s books in your library? If not, make a recommendation that it be added to the collection.
