In 2010, Pernille Ripp founded The Global Read Aloud, a global literacy initiative that began with a simple goal in mind: one book to connect the world. From its humble beginnings, the GRA has grown to connect millions of students around the world. The Young Adult book selected for 2020 is Stamped: Racism, Antiracism, and You by Jason Reynolds.
