Teen In the Book in Indiana
Keywords:Indiana teens in literature, Indiana young adult literature, geography in literature, local authors, Indiana young adult authors
Teens have been present in Indiana literature since the early twentieth century and they have continued to be present throughout the history of young adult literature in the state. Local publishers have helped maintain this presence. It’s important for librarians and educators to be aware of books written by local authors because reading books written by local authors and set in familiar locations makes stories more accessible to young people. Teachers and librarians can more easily bring local writers into the classroom and this is important in exciting young students about reading and writing.
