It’s Thanksgiving, and I’d like to take this post to thank the teens who come into the library and make our jobs and our days more interesting and fulfilling and challenging. You make the library a real reflection of Pittsburgh. Thanks for letting us into your lives.
Thanks also go to the teens who are graduating high school and entering into the armed services. You are appreciated and your sacrifice is staggering.
Ian Fisher is one of these teens, and his journey from recruitment to deployment was chronicled by Denver Post reporters and photographers for 27 months in this collecton of honest and real photographs. Click it! You won’t regret it. Doubtless you know someone or know of someone who is a soldier or maybe are someone who is thinking of it as a future option.
If you’re looking for some fictional takes on what it means to be involved in war, you can check out our booklist on the Teen site here.
If you need help crafting a thanksgiving speech for world peace to be given at your dinner table, you may find some good books here.
If you really just need help constructing a historically accurate Thanksgiving Feast, you can find books on Colonial food here.
Or if you are a vegetarian and have to fend for yourself in regards to a main course, please see these offerings.
Thank you and Happy Thanksgiving!
