A Follow Up Thought About Newsweek

It's my perception that childrens' and young adult literature doesn't get much attention in newspapers and magazines, and therefore the Newsweek article, Unhappily Ever After by Karen Springen is something pretty special.

If you think it's noteworthy also, and you have a blog, why not mention it, as Jen Robinson has done: http://jkrbooks.typepad.com/blog/2008/07/monday-night-vi.html

Here's the link to the Newsweek article: http://www.newsweek.com/id/145536

Another way of letting Newsweek know there is interest in children's literature is by sending them a letter. Their info on letters to the editor goes as follows:

They must have name, address and daytime phone number. They should be e-mailed to letters@newsweek.com, mailed to P.O. Box 2120 Radio City Station, New York, NY 10101-2102 or faxed to 212-445-4120. Letters may be edited for space or clarity and may appear in digital versions of NEWSWEEK.

Whether you like the article or not, agree with its viewpoint or don't, let Newsweek know you've read it. If they see there's real interest in children's and young adult literature, they'll be more likely to give it further coverage.
