Re: New classic literature?

There's a heck of a lot of 20th century lit taught in English classrooms, especially young adult lit. Now there's also an increase in non-fiction, much of which will also be current. The idea that English class reading is always old books is becoming more and more outdated now. Sure, Shakespeare is still read but pretty much everything else is, at the earliest, 1850 and up.
We've met before, haven't we?
