Meet The Writer Behind The #LiterarySwag Movement
Yahdon Israel is using social media to combine his two favorite things: fashion and books.
Yahdon Israel is a writer who lives in New York City, and the 24-year-old is trying to engage more people who might not like to read.
He posts photos and short videos on Instagram and Twitter of people who are reading and also look stylish, using the hashtag #LiterarySwag.
“There was this paradox, for me, growing up: The kids who were cool didn’t read; the kids who read weren’t cool,” Israel told BuzzFeed.
Now the writer is trying to redefine how people think about reading and what’s “cool.”
