Vintage YA Books to Be Re-Issued

posted by Nell Minow

DebutanteHill-WEB-192x280Lizzie Skurnick is the author of the marvelous book Shelf Discovery: The Teen Classics We Never Stopped Reading, the story of the YA books of the 1960’s to 80’s.  She has now been offered her dream assignment — to bring some of these treasures back in new editions from Ig Publishing.  Titles like Debutante Hill by Lois Duncan, A Long Day in November by Ernest J. Gaines, and To All My Friends With Love from Sylvie by Ellen Conford will reach a new generation of readers as well as the fans who remember them well.  If I could add my wishlist, it would include the books of Rosamund DuJardin like Practically Seventeen and Me, Cassie by Anita MacRae Feagles, two of my favorites when I was in what we then called Junior High.
