S. E. Hinton

"The Outsiders" has sold over 14 million copies and ranks as a classic, still widely regarded as one of the most important books in the young adult genre. S. E. Hinton first published the novel in 1967 when she was 18, inspired by class conflicts she experienced in her high school. The central themes of the book include friendship, loyalty, and the message that money doesn’t buy happiness. In April 2014, Big D Reads will distribute 20,000 copies and encourage the entire city to read and talk about the novel.

Timothy Egan

Timothy Egan will share stories from his National Book Award-winning book, "The Worst Hard Time: The Untold Story of Those Who Survived the Great American Dust Bowl," which Walter Cronkite hailed as “can’t-put-it-down-history.” The New York Times says, “Egan uses the past powerfully to explain and give dimension to the present.” At this event he will do so by discussing the land and water conservation issues evoked in Alexandre Hogue’s bleak Dust Bowl landscapes currently on view at the DMA as well as those that threaten our future.
