MIDDLE GRADE in the NEWS 9/13/18

Here are a few news and special feature articles I’ve enjoyed recently:

  1. Celebrated author Lois Lowry is 81 and going strong. She reflects on her career and how she Still Thinks Kids Need To Read About Terrible Things.
  2. There are a lot of sequels releasing this Fall. See if your favorite is on this list.
  3. 1READ is an event in Blount County, Tennessee where one book is read by both adults and kids. This time around it was REFUGEE by Alan Gratz. The slide show pictures at the top of he article show just how powerful books are for young readers. It made me smile.

That’s all for now. I’ll be back Friday with a review of a fascinating new book on D-DAY.
