2017 IS THE 50TH ANNIVERSARY OF THE YOUNG ADULT NOVEL!
All year we will be celebrating the "birth" of young adult literature!
In 1967, S.E. Hinton wrote a book that revolutionized the writing world and publishing industry. The Outsiders is considered by many to be the first book specifically written for teens, and the genre has exploded since then, with bestsellers, related television series, and movie spinoffs! This year we will be celebrating young adult literature with related programs and activities in the library. You can currently find critical articles related to YA lit in the library to take and read, and we are challenging tweens and teens to read 25 or 50 YA books this year, record them, and enter to win a prize! I am taking the challenge as well, and you can see my list below and in the library! Stay tuned for more 50th anniversary news!
