Read a Book with Bite!

Posted by grizzlymedia on October 7, 2008

Next week, October 12-18,┬áis Teen Read Week, sponsored by the Young Adult Library Services Association of the American Library Association. Teen Read Week is directed at teens, parents, librarians, educators, booksellers, and other interested adults. “Read for the Fun of It” is the primary theme of Teen Read Week, but the sub-theme changes each year. This year’s sub-theme is “Books with Bite.” This theme promotes a variety of books along the “bite” theme, from vampires to cooking to technology (bytes). You can also join the readergirlz as they celebrate Teen Read Week every night on their live chat at the readergirlz forum on MySpace. Their themes are multicultural bites, verse bites, contemporary bites, fantasy bites, and gothic bites, with a list of Creekview favorite authors. Stop by the media center (or your local public library) to check out a Book with Bite and celebrate Teen Read Week!
