Passionate about teen reads, but having a hard time getting a virtual book group going...? Join a group of teen librarians as they discuss a YA work with teen patrons of the Boston Public Library as part of their year-long #ReadingTogether challenge.
October 2021's work will be the short story anthology All Out: The No-Longer-Secret Stories of Queer Teens throughout the Ages. This collection of LGBTQ+ historical fiction stories includes entries from some of today's most popular YA authors: Malinda Lo, Mackenzi Lee, Robin Talley, Kody Keplinger, Elliot Wake, Anna-Marie McLemore, Shaun David Hutchinson, Dahlia Adler, Tess Sharpe, Kate Scelsa, Natalie C. Parker, Sara Farizan, Nilah Magruder, Tessa Gratton, Tehlor Kay Mejia, Alex Sanchez, and Scott Tracey. Authors Saundra Mitchell and Malinda Lo will be joining us to discuss the book!
The Teen Book Discussion Group will meet once a month on BPL's FREE Teen Services Twitch channel, Twitch.tv/BPLts. No registration is required; simply click this link (Twitch.tv/BPLts) or paste the URL into any internet browser at the prescribed time to watch the discussion. Participants will need to register for a free Twitch account to participate in chat. Whether or not they have read the chosen book, teens are encouraged to join the conversation, letting us know their favorite content from our teen booklists or any other great sources.
