S.E. Hinton, best-selling author of young-adult books such as "The Outsiders" and "Rumblefish," will publish her first novel in 16 years next month. Hinton's publisher, Tor Books, said "Hawkes Harbor," the story of an orphan who faces adventures on the sea, will be published Sept. 15. It's Hinton's first novel since 1988's "Taming the Star Runner" -- and her first fiction aimed at adult readers.

TULSA, Okla. -- Beyond its cluster of office towers, Tulsa is a city built close to the ground, a broad clash of neighborhoods you can tell apart by how the grass grows, bright and trim as a putting green in the richer sections, pale and shaggy in the poorer spots. Tulsa native S.E. Hinton, a cult figure for 40 years since the publication of "The Outsiders," knows the difference between the wild and the well-kept lawn.

Written when she was only 16, "The Outsiders" was S. E. Hinton's first novel. It set the pattern for her later works, which all focus on disaffected, underclass teen-agers in the Southwest. The hero of the story, Ponyboy Curtis, who conceals a poetic soul under a self-styled "greaser" exterior, finds himself drawn into a gang war that teaches him the difference between the right and wrong side of the tracks.

The fact that the cover blurb was written by R.L. Stine should have been my first clue that we were moving into the horror/fantasy realm, but I was so excited to read S.E. Hinton's first novel for adults that I passed by it with nary a glance. Hinton is the author of the quintessential volume of young adult literature, "The Outsiders," a book I could probably recite from memory.

As an 18-year-old viewer of "The Outsiders," I think Fox has the best midseason replacement series on television. The six actors who portray S. E. Hinton's beloved characters are right on target. These young men--Robert Russler, Harold Pruett, Boyd Kestner, Rodney Harvey, Jay Ferguson and David Arquette--certainly spice the series. Brenda M. Absmeier, Ventura

The public library is hosting hourlong teen book club discussions every Wednesday evening throughout October. "We base it around books, but we also talk about other things," said librarian Elizabeth Spelgie. "It's like a party at the library. It's fun."
