We're fun, fresh and fierce and here to change the nation into a reading nation. Hence the name... The Young Reading Nation aka YRN. We're here to inspire our youth and give them the opportunity to not only read but to gain the ability to imagine ; to expand our knowledge and creativity and to also widen our horizons.
