In 2008 the Library of Congress chose Jon Scieszka to be the first National Ambassador for Young People's Literature, a two-year position in which Scieszka’s mission is to get kids excited about reading. In his lecture, Scieszka talks about the cool stuff he has acquired since becoming an Ambassador, tells stories about his books and his childhood growing up as the second oldest of six brothers, and answers questions from kids in the audience.
