Welcome to the Beyond Words book blog!
I am a Young Adult Librarian at the Gunn Memorial Library in Washington, CT and I am starting a brand new teen department. I wanted to create this site as a way of giving teens in my community (and beyond) an online platform to discuss the books they love.
All too often I found myself in the middle of a book and something exciting or devastating or confusing happened and I had no one to talk about it with. I would look up from the page and just feel like I needed to talk about what just happened. So, that is what I want to do here!
I want to have more than just reviews. I want to create discussion questions, share news and podcasts, post creative writing samples from my teen patrons, talk about programs, help you find your next read, and more!
If you have something to contribute or ideas to add, e-mail me at jzaccagniniYA@biblio.org.
