Seminar Topics

Sarah: When I read your post about your possibilities about seminar topics I initially thought of Anne Frank, of course.  This website has some information about Anne Frank as a young writer. Here is a title about the effects of the Kurdish/ Iraqui conflict on a young child.  This book looks particularly interesting as well, as it is drawing a parallel between life in America for a young runaway girl leading up to and during 9/11 and the life of a teenage Afghani boy who finds himself in a refugee camp in Pakistan. 

Hope these are a little helpful!

  1. Kari, I agree that these two titles look very interesting. The refugee theme might be a very good one to investigate in a seminar. And the Stine title, REFUGEES, would also be interesting to look at with other new YA titles in which 9/11 plays a role. Thanks for sharing them. They’re now on my “want to get” list. KES
