Breedlove Readers Book Club Featured on NBC’s “The Kelly Clarkson Show”

On Dec. 16, 2022, The New York Times bestselling authors Angie Thomas and Nicola Yoon joined NBC host Kelly Clarskon to discuss their new young adult novel Whiteout and share how six highly successful Black female authors joined forces to tell stories about Black kids falling in love.

Thomas and Yoon also surprised an aspiring teen writer, Gabriella, with feedback on her short story, providing her with words of encouragement to keep going as a creative writer.

Gabriella is a member of The Breedlove Readers Book Club, a Syracuse-based teen book club run by Courtney Mauldin, Assistant Professor of Educational Leadership, and Rochele Royster, Assistant Professor of Art Therapy, College of Visual and Performing Arts, and co-founded by Marcelle Haddix, Associate Provost for Strategic Initiatives, Syracuse University.
