TRW Tribute: Ellen Hopkins 8:00
On writing for teens in celebration of Teen Read Week:
"One of my greatest joys is opening a reader email; telling me they've never finished a book before, but finished mine in record time, and could I please recommend other books? Reading empowers. If I can empower one young person, my job is truly valuable. To empower many completes me."
