Syracuse (WSYR-TV) - This week on Newsmakers with Dan Cummings, Dan talks with best-selling authors Bruce Coville and Tamora Pierce.

Coville and Pierce write for children and young adults. They challenge what they view as over-testing in schools, when it comes to reading comprehension.

They also discuss what inspired them to read and write as children and how today's teachers can help encourage and inspire young people to love reading for pleasure.
