We’ve seen dozens, if not hundreds, of videos for the ice bucket challenge for ALS.
An entire generation has grown up often missing their loved ones who were deployed to Iraq or Afghanistan. They have grown up under the difficult demands of service and sacrifice, and they deserve to know why. My new novel IF YOU’RE READING THIS is released today. It’s my best attempt…

"This summer, the Islesford Historical Museum on Little Cranberry Island is hosting an exhibition about Bryan’s life and 70-year career as a painter, poet, children’s book illustrator and puppet maker. The exhibition, “A Visit with Ashley Bryan,” is on view through Sept. 20. It encompasses Bryan’s array of creative expression.
It also serves as a precursor to what friends and family hope will be a permanent study center dedicated not just to Bryan’s art, but his approach to life, which his friends describe as joyful and absent of cynicism.”

How three YA authors found parallels to the tragedy unfolding in #Ferguson in their works of fiction
In this first book of a near future YA trilogy, PFC Daniel Wright’s National Guard unit is deployed to help state police stop a protest that is becomming a dangerous riot. People are screaming, burning buildings, and looting. Tear gas canisters are fired. When Danny is hit in the gas mask by a rock, he accidentally fires a round that causes a panic. When the smoke clears, twelve people are dead. The President demands an investigation, but the governor who sent in the Guard, refuses to even release the names of the guardsmen involved. This places Danny Wright in the middle of a tense standoff between his state and the federal government as America moves closer and closer to a second civil war.
