Were you a bookworm growing up?
Did you find a love of reading as an adult?
What kind of impact has it made on your life?
Many people feel books can shape who we are today. They can open our eyes to the world.
But lately, there’s been an issue about representation in books and recent challenges to reading materials in schools, where Katy ISD students organized to distribute books about racism, LGBTQ+ issues on their own.
