The Official Will Weaver Website

Thanks for visiting my site. My newest novel for young adults is The Survivors, sequel to Memory Boy. Check out my other titles, including Saturday Night Dirt and the "Motor Novels” series, plus Full Service and Striking Out. And a big thank-you to all the educators who have used Sweet Land, the film adaptation of my short story "A Gravestone Made of Wheat”, in your schools. If you're interested in booking me for an appearance at your school, library, community event, or convention Contact me directly. I'll reply directly usually the same day. I try not to travel all the time (writers have to write), but I'm open to hear what you have in mind. I'm also available through Skype and Google Hangout.

News for Teachers

  • Check out my latest project, a reading app called LitWeaver. I’ve rounded up a bunch of author friends, we’ve pooled some of our best work for young adults, and we’re making it available for e-reading in schools. Short stories, nonfiction, poems, plays, and a few novels—just right to supplement ongoing ELA curriculum.
