20 Questions: A Day in the Life of Alexandra Bracken

Posted by tbrmaureen
Alexandra Bracken, author of THE DARKEST MINDS, a sci-fi trilogy about a young girl who escapes a mysterious illness that kills most of the kids in America, recently took some time to answer our "20 Questions" survey sharing what a typical day is like for her. From her great aunt sharing the book at her nursing home, to watercooler chats with her co-workers, Alexandra sheds some light on what it's like to be an author and work in children's publishing.
Since we all survived the apocalypse, we figured we might as well celebrate our successful entry into 2013! While 2012 had some pretty great moments, there’s so much to look forward to as the New Year gets underway – especially book-related things.

20 Questions: A Day in the Life of Robin Marantz Henig

Posted by tbrmaureen
In 2010, Robin Marantz Henig wrote a cover story for The New York Times Magazine titled, "What Is It About Twentysomethings?" that posed a question to readers, asking why people in their 20s are taking so long to grow up. After a lot of debate on this topic, Robin, along with her daughter Samantha Henig, decided to dig a little deeper into this theory, to see if people in their 20s today really are taking longer than their Baby Boomer parents to grow up. In their new book, TWENTYSOMETHING: Why Do Young Adults Seem Stuck? they answer some questions about this, and find some new answers as well. We thought it might be fun to have Robin and Samantha answer our "20 Questions" to see what the differences are between Baby Boomers and Millennials. Below, Robin shares what a typical day is like for her, and we hope to share Samantha's with you soon, so stay tuned!
