Author Jay Asher Stops at Gilman on “50 States Against Bullying” Tour

0 Written by: | Tuesday, Oct 28, 2014 3:00pm

IMG_8335When author Jay Asher was writing his best-selling young adult novel Thirteen Reasons Why, he says he didn’t know he was writing a story about bullying. But his young readers soon clued him in.

The book is a story about 16-year-old Hannah Baker, who commits suicide and leaves behind a series of cassette tapes for the people she feels contributed to her decision to end her own life. The New York Times called Thirteen Reasons Why “a stealthy hit with surprising staying power,” and that was back in 2009. It now has more than two million copies in print and been published in 35 countries.IMG_8327

Asher says emails poured in from young readers confessing that the book had been life changing. Some readers identified with Hannah’s pain and hopelessness and said the book inspired them to ask for help; others wrote that it helped them grieve after suicides of people close to them; and still more said reading the novel made them realize how their actions affect others and that they can do more help their peers.
