Teen Read Week, October 19, 2012

"They just eat up everything you write," says bestselling young adult author Caroline B. Cooney. In this video, several Open Road Media authors celebrate Teen Read Week by discussing how they write for teens.

Novelist Jean Craighead George reflects: "You're helping them learn and grow up and it's the best thing in the world." Bette Greene, meanwhile, emphasizes, "I never speak down to young adults. I'm writing the same way I'd be writing for myself."

Watch this video and learn how YA authors Cooney, Greene, George, Andrea J. Buchanan, and Anna Perera channel a teenage voice and create different worlds for their readers.
