Best-selling Author James Patterson Explains the Importance of Literacy

Throughout his writing career, author James Patterson’s books have sold over 300 million copies. While ultra successful, Patterson still cares about you and me. He understands the importance of literacy in a way many of us have not yet grasped, and he seeks to share this information with the world.

Just this past February, Patterson gave away $1,000,000 of his own money to independent bookstores. And now, in the brief interview, you’ll see him discuss just how important it is for parents to get their children reading.

Many parents don’t understand how important reading is and aren’t terribly enthusiastic about reading themselves, which hinders their children’s ability to fall in love with it.

But Patterson has a plan. His explanation of how to get parents to understand how important reading is stays short and to-the-point but also communicates a complex understanding of the way the world works. Check it out in the video below!
