Reading Without Walls Challenge
National Ambassador of Young People’s Literature, Gene Luen Yang, has issued a challenge to all readers to read without walls in one of the three ways below.
1. Read a book about a character who doesn’t look like you or live like you.
2. Read a book about a topic you don’t know much about.
3. Read a book in a format that you don’t normally read for fun. This might be a chapter book, a graphic novel, a book in verse, a picture book, or a hybrid book.
If you choose to accept this challenge a list of suggested titles and the review forms can be found on the table in the teen room at the library or click here to download the review form. You will earn one ticket for every book that meets one of the criteria above; 5 tickets if the book meets all three. When you finish a book, return your completed form to the circulation desk and collect your tickets. The list of reading suggestion can also be viewed by clicking here.
