Teen Read Week is officially October 16th through 22nd, but here at The Hub, we’re celebrating all month long with 31 Days of Authors. On each day in October, we’ll bring you author interviews and profiles and reflections on what YALSA-recognized books have meant to us.
Mark Kurlansky’s new YA book, Battle Fatigue, will be released on the 25th. The book tells the story of Joel Bloom, who grows up surrounded by the war stories of his father’s generation, but he becomes a conscientious objector to the Vietnam War. Today, we feature an interview with Mark.
