#FellowshipofWords #TRW17 Unleash Your Story

Happy Teen Read Week! Here’s some info from the YALSA website:

Teen Read Week™ is a national adolescent literacy initiative created by the Young Adult Library Services Association (YALSA). It began in 1998 and is held annually in October the same week as Columbus Day. Its purpose is to encourage teens to be regular readers and library users. 

The 2017 event will be held Oct. 8 – 14th, featuring the theme ‘Unleash Your Story.’ Library staff, afterschool providers, and educators are encouraged to leverage this theme to encourage teens to tell their own stories as well as find stories, biographies, autobiographies, folktales, and more in their local library.  Join the conversation on Twitter with #TRW17.

As you may know, I’ve been writing about the #FellowshipofWords this year, encouraging everyone to connect with each other through words and books. (See more on the first #FellowshipofWords post at http://lynnlovegreen.com/2017-the-fellowship-of-words-year-fellowshipofwords/.) Teen Read Week™ is a great way to do that. 

Go to to their website at https://teenreadweek.ning.com or follow #TRW17 to see what libraries are doing, find great reads for teens and more!
