Authors and Artists for Young Adults is a reference series designed to serve the needs of middle school, junior high, and high school students interested in creative artists. Originally inspired by the need to bridge the gap between Something about the Author, created for children, and Contemporary Authors, intended for older students and adults, Authors and Artists for Young Adults has been expanded to cover not only an international scope of authors, but also a wide variety of other artists.
The series contains not only those creative artists who are of high interest to young adults, including cartoonists, photographers, music composers, bestselling authors of adult novels, media directors, producers, and performers, but also literary and artistic figures studied in academic curricula, such as influential novelists, playwrights, poets, and painters. The goal of Authors and Artists for Young Adults is to present this great diversity of creative artists in a format that is entertaining, informative, and understandable to the young adult reader.
