Interactive Reader Guide Coming Soon!

I just got a copy of the Yearling paperback edition of A Thousand Never Evers in the mail. I love this new cover!

Yearling paperback release date is December 22nd!

Now I’m furiously working to get a comprehensive and interactive reader guide up on my website by the new year.

It will feature video interviews that I conducted with Mississippi Delta residents who lived through the civil rights movement. I’m not the world’s best videographer, I’ll admit. But thanks to my interviewees, these video clips are riveting. The interviews correspond with various chapters of my book. I have no doubt that students will get a much deeper understanding of  the history by watching them.

The reader guide will also feature chapter by chapter discussion questions and important weblinks. The guide is designed so teachers either can use it in class, or assign sections for nightly homework if all students have internet access outside the classroom. Also, anyone leading a book club discussion will find a lot to yap about. Please check back at the start of 2010 to check it out!
