Bookanistas: Get Ready for Teen Read Week & Ballet Manga
From the awesome spokesperson, Jay Asher, to the fantabulous Teen's Top Ten novel nominees, TRW is gonna be great. It runs October 16-22, but I'll be in the thick of Audition launch insanity and the Stages on Pages live book tour, so here's my little heads-up-get-ready post!
This year's theme, PICTURE IT AT YOUR LIBRARY, celebrates graphic novels and other illustrated materials. After hearing Scott Westerfeld discuss the lost art of the illustrated novel, I've been inspired to seek out more illustrated lit. Check out this spectacular BALLERINA GRAPHICA!
TO DANCE, "...a candid view of an individual for whom ballet is essential to a fulfilling life" (Booklist, starred review), and SWAN, the classic 1970s manga series about ballet.
Do you have any plans for Teen Read Week this year? Maybe you'll get some ideas from the Bookanista linkies below...
