Celebrating a Year with Triangle Square: A note to Young Readers

October 16, 2013

This week marks the one year anniversary of Triangle Square Books for Young Readers! To celebrate, we will be sharing exclusive content with our readers and fans including interviews, videos, graphics and more!

This week, we are celebrating with A Different Mirror for Young People, written by Ronald Takaki and adapted by Rebecca Stefoff, which was published a year ago today!

To kick off our anniversary celebration, we would like to share a note from Rebecca, to our young readers and fans:

Whatever you’re reading, I have one thing to say to you, and that is, “Keep reading!”

These days, books have to compete for our time. We are surrounded by the Internet, television, movies, and videogames. But as the huge success of the Harry Potter has shown, there is still magic in the way we can lose ourselves in the world of a book. A story can make you laugh or cry, carry you to a different time or place or into someone else’s life. A nonfiction book can answer your questions, open your eyes, or widen your horizon.

As a kid I snuck a flashlight into bed so I could read in secret after I was supposed to be asleep. I don’t have to sneak a flashlight into bed any longer, but I still find time every day to read at least a few pages of whatever book I’m devouring at the moment. I hope you do, too. 

If you want to know more about me or my books, check out my website at And if you have a question for me, the website has a place where you can send me an email. Let me know what you’re reading.


Don’t forget to check out Rebecca’s other adaptations from Triange Square, including A Young People’s History of the United States and the forthcoming  The Third Chimpanzee for Young People, out next April. And check back tomorrow for even more from Rebecca and A Different Mirror for Young People!
