At Growing Leaders, we believe in the potential and power of the emerging generation. Each new generation, however, is responsible not only to do something new, but to remember what has come before. Stories of great leaders from history personify an opportunity to learn what it takes to grow, to press on, to lead. This is what biographies offer us.
We love handing over an excellent biography or memoir to the young adult readers we know. Here are some of our favorite recent memoirs and biographies for teens. Just a heads up, WeAreTeachers may collect a share of sales from the links on this page. We only recommend items our team loves! Heiligman chronicles the amazing and eccentric lives of the Van Gogh brothers, their relationship with each other, and their work.
