Come to the teen room this Thursday at 7 p.m. for this month's TAB meeting. On the agenda:
Throughout the course of Darien Library's One Book, One Community program, teens will be interviewing members of our community about their memories of and experiences in Darien. These video interviews will be hosted on our website and will become a rich, collective history of Darien. If you would like to participate, either as an interviewer or an interviewee, please contact Sarah Ludwig at email@example.com or (203) 669-5225.
This was one of those books you simply could not put down. It’s a story of a small town American-Norwegian teenager who doesn’t know what she’s good at. Her two best friends cast a big shadow for her to stand in. While working an early morning shift in her grandmother’s coffee shop she encounters someone sleeping in the alley behind her shop. She gives the stranger pastries and a coffee. He keeps coming back and claims he must reward her. You will fall in love with the down to earth thoughts of the main character, Katrina. It’s a book that leaves you fulfilled but curious, the perfect mix.
We're screening The Dark Knight for teens on Saturday, February 21 at 2 p.m. in the Community Room.
This event is for teens 13 and up. Free popcorn and soda will be provided!
On Wednesday, February 25 at 7 p.m., Rachel Cohn will be visiting Darien Library. Rachel is the author of You Know Where to Find Me, Pop Princess, Shrimp, and co-author of Nick & Norah’s Infinite Playlist.
You Know Where to Find Me is an Oprah’s Book Club pick for teens and Nick & Norah’s Infinite Playlist, which she co-authored with David Levithan, was made into a feature film starring Michael Cera and Kat Dennings.
A book signing will follow the presentation, which will be held in the Community Room.
The first 30 teens to arrive will get a free copy of You Know Where to Find Me, which comes out in paperback on February 24.
