Award-Winning Author Chris Crutcher Visits Library
Join the Richland County Public Library for a discussion and signing with award-winning author Chris Crutcher at 6:30 p.m. on Thursday, September 22 at the Main Library, 1431 Assembly St.
Chris Crutcher is one of the most successful — and most frequently banned — authors of realistic fiction in the Young Adult industry, with 11 novels, two short story collections and one autobiography to his credit. His writing features teens coping with serious problems, including abusive parents, racial and religious prejudice, mental and physical disability, and poverty. These themes are viewed as too mature for children. Despite this controversy, Crutcher’s writing has received many awards.
