Adults love teen lit too!

August 24 has almost arrived, and with it Mockingjay, the third and final installment of the Hunger Games trilogy. Are you one of the 530 library patrons that have already placed their holds? Are you so overcome with excitement you can barely function? Well, you're not the only one. According to this New York Times article, lots of very smart grown ups love reading teen lit. Well, any librarian coulda' told you that. As the article states, “A lot of adult literature is all art and no heart...There’s a freshness [in teen lit]; it’s engaging. Y.A. authors aren’t writing about middle-aged anomie or ­disappointed people.”

Talk to your youth librarian today to get great reading recommendations for not only your kids, but your own sweet self, as well!
