Did you know that there's a new play out about the banning of a YA novel in a small town? It's true!
The Metal Children by Adam Rapp, who of course is himself an acclaimed and sometimes controversial YA writer (his latest, Punkzilla, was a Printz honor book this year) and also an award-winning playwright.
I picked it up at the bookstore because I tend to pick up anything with his name on it, and when I saw what it was about I naturally bought it. And then I read it and was like man, I hope they stage it in NYC someday. And then I googled it and found that it's opening Off-Broadway at the Vineyard Theater next week! (Which explains why it was prominently displayed in the store.)
So. Who's coming with?!
