Award-Winning Author Coming to Georgia Southern

Jozsef Papp

David Levithan, an award-winning novelist of young adult (YA) fiction, will give a reading of some of his work on Feb. 23 at 6 p.m. in the Georgia Southern University Arts Building Auditorium.

The author is known for his work such as, “Boy Meets Boy,” “The Realm of Possibility,” “Every Day,” and “Two Boys Kissing.” His novels, “Nick and Norah’s Infinite Playlist” and “Will Grayson” were both New York Times bestsellers.

In addition, Levithan is an editorial director at book publisher Scholastic and a professor of Young Adult Literature at The New School in New York.

“We are thrilled to be able to bring David Levithan to Georgia Southern,” Caren Town, Ph.D., professor of English in the Department of Literature and Philosophy, said. “I’ve taught young adult literature for more than 20 years, and I have rarely found an author who is so engaging and appealing to students.”

Levithan will be available for questions during his appearance and there will be a book signing after the reading.
