The Pulse of Youth

For the past month or so, I’ve been receiving the Ypulse Daily Update: daily news and commentary about generation Y for media and marketing professionals, and, even better, Ypulse Books: insight, news and trends for the young adult and children’s book industry. Both yield fascinating info about tweens and teens. A recent post on Ypulse Books linked to an article written by Kate Macdonald Butler, the granddaughter of Lucy Maud Montgomery, author of the much loved Anne of Green Gables. In the article, part of a series in the Globe and Mail on the mental health crisis in Canada, Butler reveals that her grandmother took her own life. It is a powerful and touching story that you may want to share with older fans of the series. To subscribe go to
