Miles Morales: Stranger Tides | Justin A. Reynolds
post image

So happy to see my guys enjoying books and reading and seeing themselves in those stories. We‘re big fans of the Miles Morales graphic novel and Jameson wouldn‘t let us leave #BooksByTheBanks until we bought the latest Miles book by and get it signed by Justin Reynolds was so cool and patient as he chatted with Jameson (and confirmed the correct spelling of his name). Jameson was so excited that he had the chance to meet him. #BoysReadToo

Karisa 😍😍😍 2mo

Bookgoil Huge fan of Reynolds!!! So glad y‘all got to meet him! 2mo
Chelleo @Aimeesue We met Justin Reynolds, not Jason, who I agree is amazing too! 2mo
Aimeesue @Chelleo This is what I get for typing too fast! My apologies to both Mr. Justin Reynolds and Mr. Jason Reynolds. I was actually thinking of Justin's books, but typed Jason. ❤️ (edited) 2mo
Chelleo @Aimeesue seriously, no worries because I thought Jason at first when I saw the program. 2mo
Aimeesue @Chelleo As you might imagine, people get my name wrong all the time, at least spelling-wise, and it's aggravating. The irony here is not lost on me. 😋 2mo
Gissy A beautiful experience to know different authors to share with them.📚❤️ 2mo
