I’m sure that by now, Teen Summer Reading (TSR) is old news. However, if you haven’t signed up yet, I do encourage you to stop by your local library, say hi to your librarian, and sign up! You can earn nifty prizes and free books, as well as an invitation to your branch’s spectacular End of Summer party just for teens.
If you’d like to share what you’re reading with other teens, look no further than Hazelwood’s Teen Lounge and Book Club on Tuesday, July 2 from 2-3pm. Bring a book you are reading and share what you loved or hated about it over snacks, crafts and games. Refreshments and free books are provided.
Let’s say you’ve been reading all summer long, and you figure that you’ve already read a fair amount of books by different authors, of varying genres and writing styles. You figure it’s about time you try your hand at writing something of your own. Look no further than East Liberty’s Creative Writing for Teens on Saturday, July 6 from 3-4pm.
This special creative writing workshop will feature special guest and YA author Siobhan Vivian, author of The List and Burn for Burn. Not only do you get to meet this fabulous author, but she will also help you improve your writing! Registration is required, so register here, or by calling 412-363-8232 or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
Happy reading & writing!
