Listen to YA Write! with Amy Mathers

Amy Mathers is the CCBC’s resident YA expert and now she has her very own podcast! Inspired by Terry Fox’s and Rick Hansen’s Canadian journeys, Amy  decided to honour her passion for reading Canadian teen literature, while working around her physical limitations, by completing a Marathon of Books. Amy read one Canadian teen fiction book a day for each day of 2014, in order to raise funds for the Amy Mathers Teen Book Award. She has read books from every province and territory, exploring Canada and promoting Canadian authors and books along the way. Visit for more information about Amy’s campaign, including her book list and book reviews.

Amy’s Marathon might be over but Amy hasn’t stopped reading books for teens! Each month she interviews a different Canadian YA author all about their books. Be sure to listen now! Have an author you’d love to hear interviewed? Be sure to tweet Amy and let her know!
