About Will Weaver

Author of "Red Earth, White Earth" and "A Gravestone Made of Wheat," Will Weaver grew up in northern Minnesota on a dairy farm. The sometimes harsh and beautiful landscape of farm and small town life figures strongly in his writing. "Sweet"" Land," an independent feature film adaptation of his story "Gravestone Made of Wheat," and starring Ned Beatty, premiered in October of 2006. Weaver is also known for his young adult fiction. His character Billy Baggs, a teenage farm boy baseball phenom, earned his way into the hearts of teen readers in the series "Striking Out," "Farm Team," and" Hard Ball." Each novel has won numerous awards, including being named an ALA Best Book for Young Adults. "Memory Boy," a post-apocalyptic novel based on environmental collapse, is used across the curriculum in many junior and senior high schools. "Claws," a novel set in northeastern Minnesota (Duluth and the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness) features outdoor survival with a strong family back story. Weaver's "Full Service" won starred reviews ("Kirkus Reviews" and "The Horn Book") for its focus on a young man struggling with matters of religious faith and doubt, all complicated by his first "real" summer job, at a gas station, where he "meets the public" in all its variety. "Defect," a novel about a teenager born with a miraculous birth abnormality, highlights what one reviewer from "The St. Paul Pioneer Press" called "the humanity and decency that runs through all of Weaver's work.." As an author, Mr. Weaver is particularly concerned with youth literacy and keeping kids reading. His new MOTOR series addresses a group of underserved young adult readers: kids who love cars. His new novel "Saturday Night Dirt" and its sequel, "Super Stock Rookie," focus on dirt track stock car racing. The series starts with a close focus on a small town speedway and the cast of colorful characters who come there to race on Saturday nights. One of the characters, sixteen-year-old Trace Bonham, is a natural driver with dreams of racing professionally. The MOTOR series follows Trace's on his path toward getting a "ride" (a sponsored race car) and competing at the highest level he can. While these auto racing novels will certainly appeal to boys, Weaver's novels always contain a diverse cast of characters. Auto racing is one of the few sports that gives no gender advantage, and the MOTOR series also includes a positive and realistic portrayal of young women involved in racing.Along with the MOTOR series of novels, Weaver has formed a stock car racing team with a teenaged driver. His black No. 16 Modified race car, co-sponsored by Farrar, Straus
