It’s been a wild and sometimes scary ride lately with the political climate changing in the wake of the United States Presidential election last November and, unfortunately, racism and hatred spreading wildly. It’s hard to know where to start when you can’t vote and may not be old enough to work. The best first step: Getting information. These books can help teens (and everyone else!) do just that as you get informed and inspired.
This month at the Hub I had a booklist of titles you can read and share to celebrate Pride month.
This month (or technically last month) at Teen Services Undergound I have a post up about Gaming Unplugged for teen programs. Basically I’m talking about a lot of my favorite board games and party games to play!
Sarah is one of my favorite authors to interview and I loved this book. You can head over to the Hub to read the full post and hear about Sarah’s inspiration for this series as well as her reaction when she heard about her big win.
This month at Teen Services Undergound I have a post up about how to go about how and why I went all digital with my organization tools.
Basically I tried the planner/bullet journal route and it didn’t work very well for me so if you’ve had similar woes maybe I can help you optimize your smartphone tools to get yourself organized. It’s been a real game changer for me.
Nicola Yoon’s debut novel Everything, Everything took the book world by storm when it was published in 2015. This May readers will get to see this much loved story come to life on the big screen when the film adaptation starring Amandla Stenberg and Nick Robinson hits theaters. In the meantime this booklist has everything, everything you might want to read if you are a fan waiting for the movie to come out.
This month at Teen Services Undergound I have a post up about how (and why) I decided to go all digital with my organization instead of trying to get into Bullet Journaling.
If you’ve been experimenting with paper planners and BuJo and aren’t loving it, you might want to try some of my ideas.
I have some news! If you are a regular reader of Teen Services Underground (TSU), you might start noticing some posts from me because . . . *drumroll* . . . I’m a new Agent there!
I love checking out TSU for professional development resources and am thrilled to be part of the team. I am hoping to shift a lot of my “non-book” posts there where they might find a wider audience (like when I’m talking about library programming or displays).
My first post went up earlier in January:
