Tomorrow is the big day. Not only are YALSA and readergirlz giving thousands of publisher-donated young-adult books to teen patients across the U.S. and in Canada, they’re also encouraging all teens and YA authors and regular old people like me to leave a book in a public place on April 17, in celebration of Support Teen Lit Day. There will be a big celebration later that night at the “TBD Post-Op Party” hosted at the readergirlz MySpace forum (April 17th from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m. Pacific Time).
There are bookplates at readergirlz to insert into the books that explain the surprise to the recipient and tell them to read and enjoy. Now I just have the pleasure/torture of figuring out which books to give away. Oh, and where. Maybe at the bus stop by my library. Or somewhere near the high school. Too bad it wasn’t Monday when I could have left them at Aeropostale. Actually, that might be worth a special trip.
