An astronomical literary event is here! Get ready for Teen Read Week!
Originating from the Young Adult Library Services Association (YALSA), this Teen Read Week is from October 7th-13th, and its theme is “Written in the stars”, all to encourage any reading in fantasy, science fiction, and anything else otherworldly-in order to expand your imagination and thinking with out-of-the-box ideas!
If you’re whirling out of orbit and can’t think of any titles, we can get you started with some suggestions:

Autonomous by Andy Marino
William wins one of the new driver-less cars and takes some of his friends on a cross country trip that turns out to be more action packed than they anticipated.
The Diminished by Kaitlyn Sage Patterson
