Stories and Contemplations
And love Harry Potter and Doctor Who, incidentally.
It is for us to keep HP going through the generations. Give kids good books, not…. books that promote sparkling vampires.
As a school librarian, I can tell you that kids are still going for HP and other fantasy novels. The Twilight books are not in my library, but they are read by a very few 7th and 8th grade girls. Stephenie Meyer is relevant to pop culture for the time being, but that doesn’t make her today’s Hemingway. Maybe Jacqueline Susann.
