2010-2011 SC Young Adult Book Award Nominees Powerpoint

Thanks to Frank Moore, North Myrtle Beach High School, for the powerpoint.

2010-2011 South Carolina Young Adult Book Award Nominees

The new list of South Carolina Young Adult Book Award Nominees was released last week. Luckily, we have at least one copy of all of them in our library. You should check them out! I started reading them last week, and I have gotten through two of them already. I read All We Know of Heaven and Artichoke's Heart. Both books were more chick lit than for the males. Here is the list:

Climbing the Stairs by Padma Venkatraman

January LIbrary Contest

Name the Title

This is the form to submit for the January Book Swap Contest! Entry deadline 9:00PM Wednesday, January 25, 2009. NOTE: Your timestamp will be set when you enter "submit."

I know some students will "Google" the answers but that is okay since the purpose is to expose you to popular or quality literature, and Googling for the answers just MIGHT make you find a book you want to read.

This is a mixture of characters from current and more traditional works of literature. Name the title (and SPELLING counts.)
