Compiled by: Becky Crews, Mary Blair and Danielle Shapiro with Kay E. Vandergrift in Young Adult Literature
Sue Ellen Bridgers, a native of North Carolina, is a writer of realistic young adult novels and other stories that sensitively examine some of the tough issues that teenagers face. Confining her experience to the small Appalachian towns she knew as a child, she draws on her background as the source for her examination of kinship and connections among families, and the conflicts that arise when teenagers try to navigate through the scrutiny of small communities and families on the way to their own identities. Sue Ellen Bridgers while becoming a popular Young Adult author has remained a small-town person intensely involved in her family and her community. Her award-winning novels have established her place as one of the best young-adult writers confirmed by the articles and books (some preserved in other media) discussing her works. Sue Ellen Bridgers (nee Hunsucker) was born in 1942 in Greenville, North Carolina to Wayland and Elizabeth Abbott Hunsucker. She grew up in nearby Winterville where most of her large, extended family was involved in farming. She was the middle of three children having a sister, Sandra, two years older and a brother, Abbott, almost six years younger. She grew up in a close knit family with grandparents, uncles, and aunts always nearby.

Charles Bukowski
Henry Charles Bukowski, Jr. "Hank" was born August 16, 1920 in Andernach, Germany, though the family moved to the United States when he was quite young. At one point in his literary career, Bukowski was given the "Outsider of the Year Award." Biographer Cherkovski traces the poet's "outsider" status to early childhood, when children teased him about his German accent and called him "Heinie": "Heinie' followed him on up through the fourth grade." His parents were little comfort. Bukowski himself remarks, "I had some pretty terrible parents, and your parents are pretty much your world. That's all there is." ...[ More

147. Children's Literature: Meet Authors & Illustrators
reviews of twentyseven children's books by the Native American author.
Joseph Bruchac Joseph Bruchac is a storyteller an author whose works drawn upon his Native American background. He grew up in New York near Sarasota Springs where he lived with his grandparents. Those early years provided an opportunity to listen to them and all of their friends telling traditional stories. In the early days tribal story tellers would sit in the center of a circle surrounded by their listeners. Frequently storytelling would begin with a song of greeting accompanied by drums. Storytelling is traditionally a winter event and would stop in the summer and wouldn't start until the first frost. Bruchac reminded his audience that the tales he tells are different than those published in the books, because storytelling is a different art form. All of his books have been well received and highly praised. Bruchac has a Ph.D. from Union Graduate School and has won numerous awards including the Parent's Choice Award, the American Book Award, the Skipping Stones Honor Award for Multicultural Children's Literature. More information on Joseph Bruchac can be found at

CSPV Overview Violence in America has reached epidemic proportions. Today, all Americans are touched directly or indirectly by violent acts. In response, the Center for the Study and Prevention of Violence (CSPV) was founded in 1992 with a grant from the Carnegie Corporation of New York to provide informed assistance to groups committed to understanding and preventing violence, particularly adolescent violence. Since that time, our mission has expanded to encompass violence across the life course.
In an effort to establish more complete and valuable information to impact violence-related policies, programs, and practices, CSPV works from a multi-disciplinary platform on the subject of violence and facilitates the building of bridges between the research community and the practitioners and policy makers. CSPV has a threefold mission. First, the Information House serves to collect research literature and resources on the causes and prevention of violence and provides direct information services to the public by offering topical searches on customized databases. Second, CSPV offers

159. Implications Of Impulsivity For Substance Use
Paper by G. Scott Acton reviews the literature on impulsivity as a risk factor for substance use.
Measurement of Impulsivity in a Hierarchical Model of Personality Traits: Implications for Substance Use
G. Scott Acton University of California, San Francisco Author Note This review describes how measures of a prominent three-dimensional hierarchical model of personality traits relate to substance use. H. J. Eysenck proposed a biologically based model of personality that gave rise to related models such as those of J. A. Gray, C. R. Cloninger, and M. Zuckerman. The varying role of impulsivitya trait related to disinhibition, approach motivation, novelty seeking, and sensation seekingin successive self-report measures of this model, including the Eysenck Personality Inventory (EPI) and Eysenck Personality Questionnaire (EPQ), is described. It is argued that certain findings in experimental, cross-sectional, and longitudinal research using these measures point to the importance of impulsivity as a temperamental vulnerability factor for substance use. The argument proceeds as follows. First, Eysenck's hierarchical model of personality is described and compared to related models. Second, the measurement of Eysenck's model using two self-report questionnaires, the Eysenck Personality Inventory (EPI) and the Eysenck Personality Questionnaire (EPQ), is described and compared to related measures. Third, the possible causal importance of impulsivity in research on substance use is described. Based on this review, the use of Eysenck's measures is recommended, with particular emphasis on scales related to impulsivity.
