This summer, the Darien Library will be introducing our first ever Teen Writers Group. We're looking for teens who want to tackle that novel they've been planning, find just the right voice for their blog posts, practice their poetry, or spruce up their writing skills in general.
You can come with a piece of writing complete or half-done, or with no writing at all. We'll start with some quick (and fun!) writing exercises to get everyone going, and then focus on individual work, with opportunities to respectfully discuss and provide feedback on each others writing. The group will meet on the second Thursday of June, July, and August in the Harris Writing Room--you can come to as many or whichever sessions you choose. Email Erica Leone at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information, or just drop in for the first meeting at 3:30 on June 9. We'd love to have you join us.

How much random information do you have stored in that head of yours? Come put it to use May 19 at 3:30 in the Teen Lounge. Join our battle of wits as you compete in teams to answer trivia questions, win wikiraces, and solve puzzles. Ready, Einstein?

That's right on June 6th and June 7th Teen Librarian, Erica Leone and Children's Librarian Kiera Parrott will be in the house! We come bearing awesome and entertaing booktalks about our new favorite teen reads just in time for the summer.
*In efforts to remain green we have made the Middlesex Booktalking Flyer available in PDF here.*
Get an early glimpse of the best new books for fall 2011--this spring. Advance copies of new books are called galleys, and we've got the hookup for a bunch of new books coming out later this year.
So swing by our party on Thursday, May 26th at 4:00pm where we'll be giving away tons of galleys (and eating pizza). Grab a slice and start reading your future favorite book before anyone else does.
It's that time again for Teen Chess Titans, this Monday, April 11 at 4 - 5PM. This event will be held in Power Library Study Room 2 on the Lower Level (adjacent to the Teen Lounge).

The time is now upon us! Join us this Saturday, April 2nd at 2PM, for the Second Annual Teen Writing Competition Awards Ceremony. If you submitted a writing entry to the contest, please join us to celebrate -- or come to support friends and family who did.
Congratulations to all and good luck!
Light refreshments will be provided.
Ever heard of Interactive Fiction?
The Amanda Project is the first collaborative fictional mystery told across an interactive website, and an 8-book series. Ariel Aberg-Riger from Fourth Story Media will come to talk about how teens are literally re-writing the book on reading. Exciting Times!
