Celebrate Latinx Authors!

Danielle's picture

In honor of Hispanic Heritage Month we have a colorful "Celebrate Latinx Authors" display up in the Teen Area of the Dundee Library. In this blog post I'll highlight the books of Latinx authors, featured in the display, who you should check out! From Elizabeth Acevedo to Adam Silvera, these are prolific authors who have several titles published for teens. Part 2 of this blog post (coming soon) will focus on new authors who have recently released their first book.

Teen Book List: Summer Reads

Summer was here again. Summer, summer, summer. I loved and hated summers. Summers had a logic all their
own and they always brought something out in me. Summer was supposed to be about freedom and youth and
no school and possibilities and adventure and exploration. Summer was a book of hope. That's why I loved and
hated summers. Because they made me want to believe.

New Teen Graphic Novels

New graphic novels featuring Ms. Marvel, Squirrel Girl, the Joker, Superman, and more are just some of the recent additions to the teen graphic novel collection. Plus, we have two new books from Gene Luen Yang! I highly recommend Dragon Hoops--it's one of my favorites of the year.
