Sheryl Cannady from the Library of Congress speaks with Jon Scieszka, who will appear at the 2013 National Book Festival on September 22, 2013, on the National Mall in Washington, D.C.
Jon Scieszka was the first National Ambassador for Young People's Literature, a program sponsored by the Library of Congress Center for the Book and the Children’s Book Council. His zany, somewhat subversive sense of humor is evident in such best-sellers as “The Stinky Cheese Man and Other Fairly Stupid Tales” and “The True Story of the 3 Little Pigs.” He also has a book series and website that encourages boys to read more called Guys Read.” Scieszka’s new book is “Guys Read: Other Worlds."
