Jason Reynolds


USA flag (b.1983)

After earning a BA in English from The University of Maryland, College Park, he moved to Brooklyn, New York, where you can often find him walking the four blocks from the train to his apartment talking to himself. Well, not really talking to himself, but just repeating character names and plot lines he thought of on the train, over and over again, because he's afraid he'll forget it all before he gets home.

Jason Reynolds recommends

Sing, Unburied, Sing (2017)
Jesmyn Ward
"If Sing, Unburied, Sing is proof of anything, it's that when it comes to spinning poetic tales of love and family, and the social metastasis that often takes place but goes unspoken of in marginalized communities - let alone the black American South - Jesmyn Ward is, by far, the best doing it today. Another masterpiece."

The Hate U Give (2017)
Angie Thomas
"As we continue to fight the battle against police brutality and systemic racism in America, THE HATE U GIVE serves as a much needed literary ramrod. Absolutely riveting!"

Dear Martin (2017)
Nic Stone
"Raw and gripping. An undeniably real feast of fury and forgiveness."

Monday's Not Coming (2018)
Tiffany D Jackson
"Tiffany D. Jackson chips at the world, then cracks it, then shatters it into shards of discomfort and complexity for the reader to grapple with it. Allegedly, undoubtedly, will linger long after it’s over."
