Author event TONIGHT: SE HINTON!!!!!

That's right, S.E. Hinton, the author of The Outsiders (considered by many to be the forefather (forebook?) in the YA genre), will be at the Princeton Barnes & Noble tonight at 7pm. And yes, I'm well aware that Hinton has written many other works--but The Outsiders is the most awesome. As a book and a movie.

If you're planning on going, I will be there--look for the woman with the curly hair who shows up just on time or even late, and looks completely flustered because she got lost--AGAIN. Seriously, I cannot get to Princeton Market Fair from my job without getting hopelessly lost first. Anyway, I'm planning on buying at least three copies of The Outsiders--one for me, one for a summer reading giveaway, and one for a giveaway here. Stay tuned for a full recap!

Enjoy your reading!


  1. My 8th grade daughter just finished this book for a school assignment. She thought it was weird at first, I think some of the descriptions are dated and she had to ask me what they meant. Surprisingly, she really got into the book and finished it ahead of schedule. They will be watching the movie at school also, so I had to pull out my DVD and show her who the cast is. She knows some of the actors through me and other movies that she has seen. Her teacher mispronounced 'Socs' and actually called them 'Socks'. MY 9th grade teacher did the same thing and wouldn't listen when I tried to correct her. Anyone else have your teacher mispronounce 'Socs'?

  2. I started reading SE Hinton in the 5th grade because my librarian recommended them. I loved all her books! The Outsiders is probably my favorite classic of all, if you consider it a classic. And the movie...great actors!
