http://kidlit.tv The National Book Awards Teen Press Conference is an annual event that let's students from New York's middle schools and high schools play reporter for a day. Select students are invited to interview the finalists for the National Book Award in Young People's Literature. In 2015 the National Book Foundation partnered with the 92nd Street Y to double the quantity of students who were able to participate in the press conference. A total of 600 students from private and public schools attended the event. Rocco Staino interviewed this year's finalists; Neal Shusterman (Challenger Deep), Noelle Stevenson (Nimona), Steve Sheinkin (Most Dangerous), Laura Ruby (Bone Gap) and Ali Benjamin (The Thing About Jellyfish). In addition to the five finalists, special guest speakers attended the Teen Press Conference. This year Reading Rainbow's Levar Burton spoke with Jaqueline Woodson (2014 National Book Award for Young People's Literature) about the changing landscape of literature. Following Rocco's interview with the finalists several student reporters from Tompkins Square Middle School and The Young Women's Leadership School took their turn. These young readers really knew their stuff. They asked insightful questions regarding the author's motivation, their choice in abilities and personalities for characters, and how they conquered writer's block. ABOUT THE BOOKS Challenger Deep - National Book Awards Winner by Neal Shusterman with Brendan Shusterman Published by HarperCollins Children's Books National Book Award Winner A captivating novel about mental illness that lingers long beyond the last page, Challenger Deep is a heartfelt tour de force byNew York Times bestselling author Neal Shusterman. Challenger Deep is a deeply powerful and personal novel from one of today's most admired writers for teens. Laurie Halse Anderson, award-winning author of Speak, calls Challenger Deep a brilliant journey across the dark sea of the mind; frightening, sensitive, and powerful. Simply extraordinary. Bone GapBone Gap - National Book Awards Finalist by Laura Ruby Published by Balzer + Bray/HarperCollins Children's Books National Book Award Finalist ALA Michael L. Printz Award Everyone knows Bone Gap is full of gaps. So when young, beautiful Roza went missing, the people of Bone Gap weren't surprised. But Finn knows what really happened to Roza. He knows she was kidnapped by a dangerous man whose face he cannot remember. Most Dangerous: Daniel Ellsberg and the Secret History of the Vietnam War by Steve Sheinkin Published by Roaring Brook Press/Macmillan Children's Publishing Group National Book Award Finalist ALA YALSA Award for Excellence in Nonfiction for Young Adults From Steve Sheinkin, the award-winning author of The Port Chicago 50 and Newbery Honor Book Bomb comes a tense, narrative nonfiction account of what the Times deemed "the greatest story of the century": how whistleblower Daniel Ellsberg transformed from obscure government analyst into "the most dangerous man in America," and risked everything to expose years of government lies during the Nixon / Cold War era. A provocative and political book that interrogates the meanings of patriotism, freedom, and integrity, Most Dangerous further establishes Steve Sheinkin as a leader in children's nonfiction. Nimona - National Book Awards Finalist by Noelle Stevenson Published by HarperTeen/HarperCollins Children's Books National Book Award Finalist The graphic novel debut from rising star Noelle Stevenson, based on her beloved and critically acclaimed web comic, which Slate awarded its Cartoonist Studio Prize, calling it "a deadpan epic." Nemeses! Dragons! Science! Symbolism! All these and more await in this brilliantly subversive, sharply irreverent epic from Noelle Stevenson. Featuring an exclusive epilogue not seen in the web comic, along with bonus conceptual sketches and revised pages throughout, this gorgeous full-color graphic novel is perfect for the legions of fans of the web comic and is sure to win Noelle many new ones. The Thing About Jellyfish - National Book Awards Finalist by Ali Benjamin Published by Little, Brown Books for Young Readers National Book Award Finalist After her best friend dies in a drowning accident, Suzy is convinced that the true cause of the tragedy must have been a rare jellyfish sting-things don't just happen for no reason. Retreating into a silent world of imagination, she crafts a plan to prove her theory--even if it means traveling the globe, alone. Suzy's achingly heartfelt journey explores life, death, the astonishing wonder of the universe...and the potential for love and hope right next door.

FULL VIDEO - In recognition of her transformative impact on American literature, Ursula K. Le Guin is the 2014 recipient of the Foundation’s Medal for Distinguished Contribution to American Letters. She is the Foundation’s twenty-seventh award recipient. For more than forty years, Le Guin has defied conventions of narrative, language, character, and genre, as well as transcended the boundaries between fantasy and realism, to forge new paths for literary fiction. Among the nation’s most revered writers of science fiction and fantasy, Le Guin’s fully imagined worlds challenge readers to consider profound philosophical and existential questions about gender, race, the environment, and society. Her boldly experimental and critically acclaimed novels, short stories, and children’s books, written in elegant prose, are popular with millions of readers around the world. http://nationalbook.org/amerletters_2014_uleguin.html
