I just found out about a Teen Book Festival (thanks Book Girl!) that will be in Rochester, NY next weekend. Check out the information at http://www.teenbookfestival.org/. A great list of authors will be presenting, including Ellen Hopkins, Sharon Flake, David Levithan, Chris Van Etten and lots more. All I need to do is arrange a baby-sitter (my daughter is a little too young for this just yet...) and I'm there!
Welcome! I'm an avid fan of Young Adult literature, though I'm not exactly a young adult any longer. As a high school English teacher, I'm always looking for new titles, so please - share with me the books you love!
What I'm Reading Now...
Fences, August Wilson
Wake, Lisa McCann
Next on my reading list
Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close, Jonathan Foer
I'm a high school English teacher with a passion for Young Adult Literature. I believe in connecting with my students through reading, and I'm always looking for new titles teenagers will want to read.
