28 entertaining and thought-provoking YA novels that even adults will love

Amazon; Alyssa Powell/Insider Young adult fiction is written and marketed for teens from 13-18 years old. But adults love reading YA books too because they're important, accessible, and fun.

We tend to think of the authors of travel books and the authors of fiction books as two separate and distinct categories of writer. You’ve got your Tocqueville’s and Bill Bryson’s on one side, and your F. Scott Fitzgerald’s and Harper Lee’s on another.

Often to great effect: unsurprisingly, the talents which lend themselves to worthy fiction — the ability t...

The Birds: Migratory Bird Treaty Act redux without Tippi Hedren

Three weeks ago the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service proposed a regulation to finally resolve and codify the legal principal that an incidental bird take resulting from an otherwise lawful activity, for example a sparrows flies into a solar panel, is not prohibited under the Migratory Bird Treaty Act.

More popular (and cheap, too)

If Harper Lee had written To Kill a Mockingbird today, there’s no doubt that the salesforce and the marketers would have pushed for a catchier title, probably with better SEO. And it’s hard to imagine that Waiting for Godot would have ever been performed on Broadway. On a similar note: What would happen if instead of taking elements out of our work in order to make the product cheaper, we put things in instead? What if we made it better? It’s tempting to race to the bottom. The problem ...

Ask the author: Hamilton and the Law (and the court)

Hamilton content? Hamilton content! Hardly any topic is more ubiquitous these days than Lin-Manuel Miranda’s smash musical. Fans, academics, artists and writers of all stripes – even Supreme Court justices – have found cause to analyze or drop references to it. Seemingly the only platform it hasn’t graced is SCOTUSblog.

Student-led group aims to make high school reading lists more diverse

Amid a new civil rights movement that has swept across the country, a group of high school students and recent grads struck on an idea earlier this year that might, in some small way, improve racial understanding. It was time, they said, to include more diverse authors in the curriculum for literature classes. About a half dozen Southern California young people recently formed Diversify Our Narrative, an organization dedicated to changing high school reading lists by petitioning individual distr...
