Marc Aronson
(Session on March 12)

Winner, Robert F Sibert Award for Non-Fiction, 2000

Marc Aronson is an author, professor, speaker, editor, and publisher who believes that young people, especially pre-teens and teenagers, are smart, passionate, and capable of engaging with interesting ideas in interesting ways.

He writes books, visits schools, teaches classes, and publishes books that affirm this belief. His mission is to inspire young people to ask questions, to look around, behind, inside of the stories the world tells us – whether that means being a detective, examining the clues history has left behind, or a reporter, telling the truth about the modern world.

He is an Associate Professor of Professional Practice at the Rutgers University School of Communication and Information.
