Teen Read Week Returns October 13-19!

| No Comments

TEENREADWEEK.pngTeen Read Week, which promotes the crazy idea that reading can actually be fun,  returns for another annual go-around starting this Sunday and lasting until the 19th.  In celebration of the event, we've put together a smart-looking page on the library's Teens website here

You can find a bunch of links there, including one that has a list of new books at Greenwich Library, one with an app you can download to find award-winning titles, and one that allows you to vote  for titles to be included in  the 2013 Teens Top Ten sponsored by the Young Adult Library Services Association (YALSA).  Heck, there's even Tumblr and Pinterest links you can check out!

SEEKTHEUNKWON.pngThis year's theme for TRW is "Seek the Unknown" at your library. (See picture above.)  YALSA wants to encourage teen readers "to explore and learn about the unknown through mystery, adventure, sci-fi, and fantasy books." 

Keeping with that theme,you might want to seek out works by such diverse writers as Cassandra Clare, Suzanne Collins, Ally Condie, Charles Higson, Anthony Horowitz, D.J. MacHale, Maggie Stiefvater, and Scott Westerfeld, as well as other authors not mentioned. Seeking the unknown -in this case, interesting books you might like to try out or revisit- can actually be a lot of fun!  Have a great Teen Read Week!
