Young Adult Lit/Crit

Seminar for 3/20/08**

Filed under: Seminar! — kariredmond @ 7:11 pm

Okay guys… don’t make me use peer pressure here! I need two more people for my seminar- so sign up please!

Especially if you want to hear about this AMAZING book that came out March 4 called You Know Where to Find Me about what happens after a young adult commits suicide, and who is left to pick up the pieces. A provacative story about loss, coping, and the effects of suicide on other teenagers. I am REALLY excited about this novel and you should be too.

Also: another book on my seminar list is called Impulse gives insight into the “recovery” of three teenagers who were unsuccessful at commiting suicide, and in a very unique stream of consciousness style, gives an up close and personal view of how these teens felt so tragically desperate to end their lives.  Another really great addition to my library that I would love to share with you guys!

 So SIGN UP (don’t make me beg or bribe) 🙂




  1. Kari,

    Actually, I meant to sign up originally and, well, got busy… I will get the folder from you in class Tuesday. My seminar topic (Children and War) is as cheery as yours, so it seems like a good match. Looking forward to it.

    My only concern is that I have to leave class early on Thursday – by 6:15. I hope this won’t interfere with your seminar or lit. circles.

  2. Kari,

    I will join your seminar. Sorry if this response is late, I have been avoiding the computer for the past week.

  3. Hi Kari,

    I would like to join your seminar as well. I don’t plan to be on campus before Thursday though. Is there a way for you to e-mail the folder to me, or do you live in Syracuse? If this is difficult don’t sweat it. Your topic is an interesting one. I hope I can be a part of it.

  4. Hey! Thanks for signing up- just have to make sure its ok to have 4 people in my seminar since Jonathan already signed up in pre-peer pressure posting (wow what an alliteration 🙂 ) Seriously though, thanks for the interest!

  5. Josh,
    Karen has informed me that I can only have 3 seminar attendees but I do thank you for your interest. I will make you a copy of the bibliography if you ever wanted to examine any of the novels. Thanks again.
