Mark your calendars! The one and only Laurie Halse Anderson is visiting ARS on Monday, October 24th at 2 pm!
LHA is one of our most powerful voices in young adult literature. In 2009 she was awarded the American Library Association’s Margaret A. Edwards Award “[honoring] an author, as well as a specific body of his or her work, for significant and lasting contribution to young adult literature.” Moving between realistic contemporary fiction that addresses the very real issues faced by today’s teens (Speak and Wintergirls) and riveting historical thrillers based on touchstone moments in our country’s history (Fever 1793 and her Seeds of America Trilogy), Laurie Halse Anderson creates stories that demand “just one more chapter” before turning out the lights.
