Interview with Kimberly McCreight and the Pulitzers

Two items to enjoy this morning.

Reconstructing AmeliaSix times each year I have the opportunity to interview a debut author whose first title exemplifies an adult book with teen appeal. My interview with Kimberly McCreight, author of Reconstructing Amelia, is out today. If you subscribe to the SLJ Teen Newsletter you will find it in your inbox later today. If not, take a look here.



The Black CountThe 2013 Pulitzer Prizes were announced earlier this week. One of them is a terrific nonfiction choice for teen readers. Black Count: Glory, Revolution, Betrayal and the Real Count of Monte Cristo by Tom Reiss won the prize for Biography or Autobiography. We reviewed it back in September 2012.
