Celebrate Teen Read Week with Simon & Schuster

A YALSA literacy initiative

The site offers many new titles, as well as reading lists by category. Some allow you to read the first chapter as a teaser. (Consider using the preview chapter as a read-aloud!)

Teen Read Week is a literacy initiative of the Young Adult Library Services Association (YALSA). It's an annual event, which is held the third week in October (October 14-20, 2012).

"It Came From the Library®", (YALSA's 2012 Teen Read Week theme), offers a fun and simple way to show off what's lurking in your stacks! Teens have so many options for entertainment, so it's important to remind them to spend time reading for pleasure: it's free, fun, and can be done anywhere!
