We’re gathering suggestions for twelve categories:
  • Romance
  • Humor
  • Multiple Voices (two or more points of view)
  • Realism
  • Fantasy
  • Science Fiction
  • Protagonist of Color
  • Historical Fiction
  • Nonfiction
  • Classics of Teen Literature
  • Retellings (of classics, fairy tales, etc.)
Please not this year we haven’t specified a graphic novel/comics category, but obviously titles in any format can be eligible for each genre, so think about graphic novels, comics, poetry, and other formats in making your suggestions.

Send in your suggestions over at our suggestion box here:

Join us the 2nd Wednesday of every month from 7:00-8:00pm to chat about teen lit, eat many snacks, and recommend all sorts of titles.

Open to adults AND teens!

Led by Robin Brenner at the Main Library, 361 Washington Street. No sign-up is necessary.

Each month’s book is available at the circulation desk one month before the discussion. Open to teens, 7th grade and up, and adults.
