Young Adult Nonfiction @ Pearl

We know you love CMRLS because of all of our awesome and up-to-date YA fiction: the thrillers, the mysteries, the dystopias.

But we also know that you're in school and that you have to write papers, do projects, and finish homework. We also know that sometimes, you're just interested in stuff. Here at Pearl, we've recently gotten in a whole lot of new nonfiction books. These are great sources for your research papers, they'll provide information for your essays, and they're more reliable than Wikipedia! We also have new books on the most up-to-date world events and issues, like the Gulf Oil Spill and the Haiti Earthquake. These books are located on the nonfiction wall of the Teen Center. Ask at any desk for help!

Look Who I Met!

Last week I went out of town to a book festival and guess who I met. Robin Bridges, author of The Gathering Storm! You may remember her from my previous entry and book review, but if you missed it you can find it here. She will be at Brandon Public Library April the 26th @ 6:00 so be sure to mark your calendars! You won't want to miss this!
