Minnesota is THE place to be this winter if you're a teen or just love YA lit. The Metropolitan Library Service Agency (MELSA) has partnered with the Teens Know Best (TKB) book club to host some of the best loved young adult authors during the Teens Know Best Author Series.
Saturdays in February, March, and April provide opportunities for you to meet:
- 2/9 Jay Asher - Thirteen Reasons Why
- 2/16 Steve Brezenoff - Brooklyn Burning
- 2/23 Lauren Myracle - Shine
- 3/9 Jordan Sonneblick - Notes from a Midnight Driver
- 3/16 Neal Shusterman - the Unwind trilogy
- 3/23 Andrea Cremer - Rise
- 4/6 Tamora Pierce - Mastiff: the Legend of Beka Cooper
- 4/13 Barry Lyga - I Hunt Killer
As fans of this blog, you know that TKB is blessed to have an awesome group of teen readers/reviewers. Recently, a couple of our members have become local media stars! Check out this segment from KARE 11 that features our very own AJ and Elise (and Sally Lederer from MELSA) as they promote the Teens Know Best Author Series:
An event like this takes an amazing amount of time, creativity, and effort to plan and execute. So, for everyone involved, please know you have our appreciation for your contributions.
Thanks MELSA and TKB for making Saturdays in the Twin Cities a whole lot hotter!
