Controversial young adult author reads tonight at Murray State
By Matt Markgraf
Murray, KY – Today, young people connect to the internet and engage with the adult world at a level that didn't exist 10 or 20 years ago. This development is increasingly reflected in young adult fiction, causing authors to reassess the boundaries of what's acceptable. Tonight at 7 pm, Chris Crutcher, a young adult author who's been pushing these boundaries, will give a reading and talk at Murray State's Wrather Auditorium. Matt Markgraf spoke with Crutcher about censorship and his response from young people.
Chris Crutcher is an award-winning author of young adult literature. He will be giving a reading and talk at the Wrather Auditorium on Murray State's campus tonight at 7.
