Hinton’s classic novel of Greasers and Socs — which she published at the unbelievably young age of 16 — is celebrating its 50th anniversary. Fortunately, “Nothing gold can stay” doesn’t apply to great literature. [ew.com]
To commemorate the book and the impact it has had on so many generations of teens, Penguin Young Readers released a brand-new anniversary edition of The Outsiders. This special edition of the groundbreaking novel contains: Never before seen photos and letters from the publisher’s archives; original review clippings and media coverage; photos from the author’s personal collection; a gallery of covers around the world; new material from the stars and director of the iconic film–including Francis Ford Coppola, Rob Lowe, Matt Dillon, and others.
