Thursday Twitter Takeover: Luke Reynolds

Each week, an accomplished published author takes over the YEM Twitter account for Thursday’s Twitter Takeover. Each week, the YA author will answer questions, tell stories, and give advice on our social media. This week author Luke Reynolds will be taking over our Twitter account.

Luke Reynolds is the author of the new book Even More Fantastic Failures: True Stories of People Who Changed the World by Falling Down FirstIn this new title, author and teacher Luke Reynolds offers inspiration and encouragement with thirty more profiles of successful people who experienced failure firsthand. Reynolds’s witty humor and compassionate spirit reminds young readers that it’s okay to make mistakes, as long as you try, try, try again!

Even More Fantastic Failures follows up Luke Reynolds’s popular first installment of Fantastic Failures, this time with even more flops and sidebars from athletes like Nick Foles, to philosophers like Socrates, and artists like Beyoncé Knowles.

Luke Reynolds is a passionate believer in the power of stories to transform lives—especially stories that help us understand that we all fail and flounder sometimes. Luke has been a public school English teacher at both the secondary and middle school levels, and he currently is an assistant professor of Education at Endicott College.
