King of YA at ACP this Thursday!

Ever read Nick & Nora's Infinite Playlist? Ever see it? It was co-authored by Rachel Cohn and David Levithan. Many of you know that David is a YA king. From his authorial debut with Boy meets Boy (Knopf, 2003) to the anthologies he edits, Levithan gives readers an "honest dose of reality". Editorial director at Scholastic, and founding editor of the PUSH imprint, which is dedicated to publishing new voices and new authors in teen literature. Yep- he's a YA king.

This Thursday at 4pm at A Children's Place, David will be reading from his newest book Love is the Higher Law (Knopf, 2009). Levithan chronicles the lives of three teens whose paths are intertwined and forever changed by the horrors of 9/11 in NYC. It's been 8 years. I think I'm ready to read this now.

This is on my TBR pile. The students I have now were so young on 9/11 that they have little recollection of it, so this is timely.
