Librarian to Moderate Discussion

Assembly on Literature for Adolescents of the National Council of Teachers of English – 11/25 and 11/26 Boston

“It’s Complicated: Diverse Authors Revisit the Classics”

Librarian and critic Edith Campbell moderates a discussion in which three YA authors—Latino mystery/thriller writer René Saldaña, Jr.; Kekla Magoon, the author of historical fiction and non-fiction about the African-American experience; and Lyn Miller-Lachmann, whose most recent novel is based on her life with Asperger’s syndrome—explore how the classics inspired their work, and how their work was created in reaction to the classics.
