Portland author and librarian Sara Ryan has a great post about the recent YA extravaganza at Klindt’s Bookstore in The Dalles. It’s a nice response to Meghan Cox Gurdon’s recent Wall Street Journal essay about contemporary YA fiction being overly dark—and the storm caused by it, which is outlined well by bestselling YA author Laurie Halse Anderson here. Thanks to Klindt’s for shining a light on YA!
