What We Remember, What We Forget: The Best Young Writers And Artists In America

Product Description The best art and writing from the most talented students across the country. Every year, the Scholastic Art and Writing Awards receive thousands of entries from all over the country. To celebrate the 10th anniversary of the PUSH anthologies, here are the best of the best, from 2008 through 2011. Every one has a story to tell, captured on film or translated into poetry. And every one has a vision to share, smoothed on a canvas or scribbled on paper. This must-read offers a glimpse into the future of art and literature, as only the creators of that future could share. From School Library Journal Gr 8 Up-This year marks the 10th anniversary of the PUSH anthologies, so Levithan has compiled the best of the best from the 2008 to 2011 winners. The poetry and prose selections are a combination of voices from every walk of life that traverses the world from Beijing to Nigeria to America and back again in a compendium of love and loss, life and death. Topics covered range from working the graveyard shift at Walgreens to Eve in the Garden of Eden to the bravery of coming out and finding yourself. There is a broad range of mature emotion that adults can sometime forget exists in teens. It is uplifting and inspiring to hear the creative voices of the up-and-coming generation. Teens will be able to relate to at least one of these stories as they hear their own voices in those of their peers. The experiences found within these words will resonate with readers long after the last page is turned. A collection of art and photography submissions found in the center of the book will appeal to visually oriented teens.-Kimberly Castle-Alberts, Hudson Library & Historical Society, OHa(c) Copyright 2011.

His parents were both history teachers and amateur artists, and Adam grew up surrounded by his father?s paintings of historic English battles ? which left a lifelong mark on his imagination. He was also fascinated by the ancient sword and shield that hung in his father?s office. Adam?s father said they were a Blade family heirloom. Sadly, Adam does not have his own Ice Dragon or Ghost Panther. But he really wishes he did!
