AUTHOR INTRO:
About the Author
Susan Eloise Hinton was born on July 22, 1948 in Tulsa, Oklahoma. A self-confessed tomboy, Hinton
grew up wanting to be a cowboy or a writer. She was an avid reader, but found the young-adult books
she read rather unoriginal and unrealistic. At age sixteen, aggravated with the social climate at her high
school and frustrated with the quality of available reading materials, Hinton took pen to paper and wrote
one of the most-read and loved books for young adults: The Outsiders. This first edition, published in
1967, was an instant success, earning numerous awards.
   Hinton wrote The Outsiders under the pen name S.E. Hinton, after publishers expressed concern that
a woman's name on the book would keep boys, the target audience, from reading it. The trick worked,
and The Outsiders became an instant young-adult classic, enjoyed by boys and girls alike.
