Authors of All American Boys
A 2016 Coretta Scott King Author Honor book, and recipient of the Walter Dean Myers Award for Outstanding Children's Literature
In this award–winning novel, two teens—one black, one white—grapple with the repercussions of a single violent act that leaves their school, their community, and, ultimately, the country bitterly divided by racial tension. On December 1st, Reynolds and Kiely will participate in discussion of this important topic with State High students during the day, and will dialogue with the Centre County community at 7 pm at the Downtown Theatre.
