After sharing his journey to becoming a writer and his role as National Ambassador for Young People’s Literature, he answered students' questions and signed their copies of his books. Reynold’s many books include Look Both Ways; Miles Morales: Spider-Man; the Track series (Ghost, Patina, Sunny, and Lu), Stamped: Racism, Antiracism, and You; and Long Way Down, which received a Newberry Medal, a Printz Award, and a Coretta Scott King Award.
