YA Novels are taking over the world!

August 22, 2009

Well, that may be an example of hyperbole, but I am amazed and thrilled at some of the places I see young adult literature popping up these days. Example: The Corn Palace in Mitchell, South Dakota. Yep, right there next to the popcorn balls and souvenir corncobs were Melissa Marr’s WICKED LOVELY and Stephanie Meyercorn palace‘s TWILIGHT.IMG_2667books at corn palace

    Awesome! Although I must know – what else can one find at a corn palace??

      Well, there are murals made of corn, birds eating the corn, corn necklaces, perhaps even corndogs, and I heard American Idol David Cook was set to perform there…amongst the kernels. The Corn Palace is also home to the polka festival each fall as well as the Dakota Wesleyan University and Mitchell High School kernel basketball teams.
