YA Lit and the WSJ
An article in this week's Wall Street Journal (WSJ) titled "Darkness Too Visible," has inspired a heated discussion on the ECNing and beyond.  To which several, including the Goddess of YA herself Teri Lesesne and YA author Jackie Morse Kessler responded with incredible blogs. Paul Hankins got a conversation going on the ECN, which you can read by clicking here. The WSJ article is a relative of a now relatively well-known essay some years ago by Francine Prose titled "I Know Why the Caged Bird Cannot Read," which appeared in Harpers. You can read that essay by clicking here
