We remember Tunnel Road and 1960by Rob Neufeld             The “Buck Burger”—“made with two pure beef patties,” tomato, lettuce, cheese, and a dill chip, “served with Buck’s own special dressing on a toasted bun.”             That was something that you could get at Buck’s Drive-In on Tunnel Road, from 1946 to 1972, when…See More

Billy Ray's Chevrolet and Other Writings and Photographs from a Southern Appalachian Valley

Thought of this little piece from my eBook today:Brittle sticks and dry leaves on the ground crunch beneath my feet.The day is crisp and cold.The sky is white and the sunlight is dreamlike, filtered by thin clouds and casting a surreal glow.A sharp north wind gusts and swishes through bare branches and across frozen ground powdered with new snow.Ancient mountains rise with leafless trees revealing the tops of ridges you can’t see in summer, just as they did during the winters of my…See More

NC-based publishing house Algonquin Books officially announces Algonquin Young Readers, a new imprint for readers from 7 to 17. It will launch with 5 novels in Fall 2013, but it is planned to release 15 novels a year in the future. Algonquin Young Readers will feature primarily fiction novels, but will also include a few select narrative non-fiction titles.

 

“We are excited to bring to young readers books of the same literary merit and enduring qualities that are the hallmarks of the Algonquin tradition,” said Elise Howard, editor and publisher for Algonquin Young Readers.

The first five books to be released by Algonquin Young Readers this fall include a middle-grade illustrated adventure about a circus and its animal crew, and a young adult love story between two young women in Iran, where it is a crime to be homosexual.

 

Elizabeth Scharlatt, publisher for Algonquin Books, states: “This is an exciting step towards Algonquin’s future, a logical way for us to grow while still keeping our adult list small. We’ve been thinking about attracting younger readers for a long time and now the time is clearly right. More thrilling, though, the books themselves are extraordinary, just dazzling.”

 

Visit the Algonquin Young Readers webpage for more information.
