Happy Birthday, Lois Lowry!

by Cheryl Wollner


Happy birthday, Lois Lowry (1937-)! Often credited as writing the first YA dystopian novel (The Giver, 1993), Lois Lowry has gifted the literary world with each series and stand-alone novel she writes. Lowry does not categorize The Giver and its sequels as science fiction, but rather views her work as telling stories. It’s refreshing to […]


Historical Fiction v. Speculative Fiction

by Cheryl Wollner


I grew up on historical fiction. I was reading the American Girl books and Dear America  in elementary school. The Royal Diaries connected me with Anastasia and taught me how similar I was to these historical women and how power does not equal safety. Ann Rinaldi’s novels were some of the first I read which […]

It almost creates a genre […]



Happy Birthday Jane Yolen!

by Cheryl Wollner


This week we celebrate Jane Yolen’s birthday.

What’s most impressive is her feminism and the joy she brings to what she does. Yolen’s work on my reading list: Lost […]

Book Review: Lair of Dreams (Libba Bray)

by KC Maguire


I always love Libba Bray’s writing and Lair of Dreams, the second installment in the Diviners series, doesn’t disappoint. The first book was one of the best speculative fiction novels I’ve read in a long time for younger and older readers alike. What Bray does so well is mix together genres and characters in unique […]
