Thinking Aloud
Young Adult Literature
Think back to your high school days. Who ever really wanted to read "The Scarlet Letter"? More tellingly, did reading "The Scarlet Letter" at that age make you want to read? We live in a new age of literary legitimacy, with room for more than the established classics. We'll look (perhaps in vain) for the boundary between serious reading and guilty pleasure, as we discuss young adult literature with New York Times bestselling author Shannon Hale. Jesse Crisler and Chris Crowe, both of the BYU English Department, also join us.—Original airdate: 5/23/2008
