An Evening with Chris Crutcher: The Truth in Fiction
Thursday, February 11, 2021, 6 p.m. CST
Renowned young adult author Chris Crutcher will be the featured guest of National English Honor Society. Author of such books as Whale Talk, Staying Fat for Sarah Byrnes, Chinese Handcuffs, and others, Crutcher received the Margaret A. Edwards Award from the American Library Association for his contributions to writings for teens.
In preparation for this webinar, Crutcher writes, “There is so much human truth that comes out in good fiction and it seems to me that bringing those truths into the light has never been more important.” A fierce defender of the students’ right to read and a vigorous critic of censorship, Crutcher will also share thoughts about “not only the right to read but the right to write and the importance of both.”
Plan now to attend this webinar which promises to be inspirational, witty, and a great learning opportunity.
All advisors should have received registration information; we have limited capacity for the number of attendees we are able to accommodate. Don’t delay!
