Library Links: Laurie Halse Anderson Thinks Adults Should Be Reading More YA

I learn more from good young adult fiction than I do from most adult novels. Great insight here from an author who touched me long ago.

Laurie Halse Anderson Thinks Adults Should Be Reading More YA

grid-cell-28750-1424133234-17“I’ve been an adult for a while now, and I’ve met my share of very unhappy adults, and it’s so sad… and I have this theory that we go through many adolescences in our lives… [and] also the emotional challenges that then come with these changes.

More adults should read YA [because] it gives them insight into what their kids and the next generation of Americans are dealing with, which is important. It can also give them insight into… some of their own sadness and sorrows, and shine a light on maybe some work that they need to do emotionally, which is very helpful.”
