Author Jason Reynolds to read from ‘All American Boys’


Jason Reynolds, co-author of “All American Boys,” will read from the award-winning novel he wrote with Brendan Kiely about police brutality, racial tension and the power of social media, as seen from the eyes of two teens — one black and one white.

The evening promises to be interesting, as Reynolds has vowed never to write boring books. Bonus: There will be a drawing for a chance to win one of the author’s novels.

A book signing follows the program, which takes place 6 to 8 p.m. April 27 in the third floor auditorium at the Mandel Public Library, 411 Clematis St., West Palm Beach. Call 561-868-7703 for more information.

This program for teens is sponsored by the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office and the West Palm Beach Library Foundation.
