Can books help make readers better human beings? Linda Sue Park talks about how books provide practice at responding to the unfairness in life, and how empathy for a book’s characters can lead to engagement in ways that have significant impact in the real world.

Linda Sue Park is the author of many books for young readers, including A SINGLE SHARD, winner of the 2002 Newbery Medal, and A LONG WALK TO WATER, on the New York Times bestseller list for more than two years. She has traveled to 46 states and 16 countries to talk to audiences of all ages about books, reading, and writing.

This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at
