Controversy & Banned Books chat on Twitter

This Wednesday at 9pm EST, I will be talking on #YAlitchat (on Twitter) with the wonderful authors Ellen Hopkins @EllenHopkinsYA (author of Crank, Glass, etc) and Laurie Halse Anderson @asklaurie (author of Speak, Wintergirls, etc) about controversy and banned YA books. I hope you’ll join us in the conversation!

To join in a Twitter chat, one of the easiest ways is to go to, log in with Twitter, and then type the hashtag “YAlitchat” into the search box at the top (and then click on “go”). From there, you’ll be able to see the entire conversation and join in any time. Your tweets will automatically have the hashtag added at the end of them, so others following the chat see what you say.

Hope to see you there.
