YARN may be on hiatus but today at 10AM our October Pop-Up story will be going LIVE! If you’re in for a read that might just have the hairs of your arm stand on end, stay tuned!
Before his novel, Noggin, was a National Book Award Finalist, John Corey Whaley shared some of his poetry with YARN.
This quote is taken from a poem John Corey Whaley wrote some years ago during a challenge he and his friend, Randi Anderson, dubbed the “Random Word Challenge.” To read more about the challenge, the poem this quote is taken from, and more original John Corey Whaley poetry, check out this article John Corey Whaley wrote for YARN.
Primrose Everdeen (well, technically, Willow Shields, who plays her in the Hunger Games series) is here with this year’s YALSA Teens’ Top Ten.
What is Teens’ Top Ten? From their website:
The Teens’ Top Ten is a “teen choice” list, where teens nominate and choose their favorite books of the previous year!
Tons of great titles were chosen for the list this year, and even more great titles were nominated. For more information on this year, and for lists from past years, click here. See if you can spot the YARN alum that was nominated this year?
OK, It’s Leila Sales, author of This Song Will Save Your Life. You can read her interview with YARN from last year by clicking this link. And if you haven’t, then by all means read This Song Will Save Your Life. It is fantastic!
