A little while ago a stunning
statistic flew around the
internet: 33% of American
high school graduates never
read another book in their
lives. Without going into a
debate about statistics, it
highlights just how important
reading at school is and how
vital teenage writers (and
teachers, and librarians) are.
The books kids read while
at school might be the last
books they ever read. Join
three exceptional writers for
teen readers as they discuss
in- and out-of-school reading
cultures, reading for pleasure,
the importance of creating
an appetite for books that
might last a lifetime and the
pressure to not be the last
book ever.


PANEL: Presented by VATE
