Nathan Fillion (of Firefly, Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog and Castle) is on an ALA READ poster.
Even better, he is holding a young adult book: The Softwire: Awakening on Orbis 4 by P.J. Haarsma. Sometimes, when an actor stars in a READ poster, it's publicity for their latest film project and they are holding the book that their film was based on.
Fillion is holding a science fiction book for young adults.
Haarsma and Fillion are co-founders of Kids Need to Read: "Kids Need to Read works to create a culture of reading for children by providing inspiring books to under-funded schools, libraries, and literacy programs across the United States, especially those serving disadvantaged children." So, in addition to Fillion promoting a YA book, this poster also brings publicity for Kids Need to Read.
More information on the ALA READ Poster is at the Kids Need to Read Community website.
ALA READ Posters can be bought at the ALA Store. According to the Kids Need to Read website, the poster isn't available until mid-July. That won't stop me from looking for it at ALA DC!
