Jason Reynolds and Brendan Kiely stopped by Ridley High School on Tuesday, October 6, to talk about their brand new novel, All American Boys. Students from College Prep, Creative Writing, Criminal Justice, Drama, Journalism, and World History classes packed the Board Room to capacity! Our students were an attentive audience as the authors spoke about their very different experiences with law enforcement during their teen years, how the death of Michael Brown and other recent headlines inspired All American Boys, and how their co-writing collaboration came about. Jason and Brendan were especially impressed with our students’ thoughtful, insightful questions.All American Boys has been getting rave reviews, with School Library Journal noting that “this novel promises to have an impact long after the pages stop turning.” I can’t wait to hear what Ridley students think of the book! Many, many thanks to Children’s Book World in Haverford, PA, for making this author event possible!
