Young People's Pavilion: Reading to Write: Connecting Composition and Literature

There are 4 comments on the story from Oct 16, 2011, titled Young People's Pavilion: Reading to Write: Connecting Composition and Literature. In it, reports that:

The stories they tell in these histories are of people, places, books, and ideas that moved them, compelled them to action, and ultimately shaped their identities. Students often testify to the works that got them excited about reading, that surprised them, intrigued them, con-fused them, and stuck with them. A variety of texts compete for our students’ attention and multiple literacies are required to remain competitive and fluent today. But literature and narrative still have a place in our students’ lives, whether Harry Potter or Hamlet, Stephen King or “ Story of an Hour,” Facebook or Faulkner.
writes Elizabeth Howells in Literature: Reading to Write.

The book includes an eclectic array of classic and contemporary voices in literature, as well as sections devoted to newer genres, such as graphic novels.
