Appearing In Albany: Jason Reynolds, Novels For Boys Who Don't Read

Jason Reynolds, young adult novelist and poet
November 17 (Tuesday)

 
Reading — 7:00 p.m. [NOTE EARLY START TIME], Huxley Theatre, NYS Museum, Cultural Education Center, downtown Albany  Event is FREE!

Jason Reynolds, YA novelist, writes smart, engaging books for “teenage boys who don’t like to read.” He received the American Library Association’s Coretta Scott King/John Steptoe Award for When I Was the Greatest (2014), which Booklist called “urban fiction with heart, a meditation on the meaning of family, the power of friendship, and the value of loyalty.” His new novels include The Boy in the Black Suit (2015), about a teenager coping with his mother’s death, and All American Boys (2015, with Brendan Kiely), the story of two teens—one black, one white—and the repercussions of a single violent act.

Cosponsored by Albany High School, The Center for Law and Justice, The African American Cultural Center of the Capital Region, and UAlbany’s Department of Literacy Teaching & Learning, Friends of the New York State Library

COMMENTING CHARGES
Per comment rate: $2
Payable by either clicking the BitCoin "tip me" button or the PayPal "donate" button in the sidebar.

WAIT, WHY DO I HAVE TO PAY TO COMMENT?
Because, like the fine publication Tablet, whom I borrowed this concept from, I too am committed to bringing you the best, smartest, most enlightening and entertaining reporting and writing I'm able to provide, all free of charge. I take pride in my loyal readership, and I'm thrilled that you choose to engage with me in a way that is both thoughtful and thought-provoking. But the Internet, for all of its wonders, poses challenges to civilized and constructive discussion, allowing vocal—and, often, anonymous—minorities to drag it down with invective (and worse).

I'm asking people who'd like to post comments on my blog to pay a nominal fee—less a paywall than a gesture of your own commitment to the cause of great conversation. All proceeds go to helping me bring you the provocative and/or entertaining articles that brought you here in the first place.

I NEED TO BE HEARD! BUT I DONT WANT TO PAY.
Readers can still interact with me FREE of charge via Facebook comments and Google+ comments! You can also reach me via Twitter @davelucas

I hope this new largely symbolic measure will help create a more pleasant and cultivated environment for all! Those of you who choose to contribute, thanks for your support.
