Virtual Author Series Events Celebrate Teen Read Month at the Houston Public Library
The Houston Public Library celebrates Teen Read Month with a series of virtual author visits. Teens will be able to interact with four well-recognized teen authors using a computer or laptop. During the virtual teen author visits, teens will have an opportunity to chat about new books, past books, the author’s writing process or even ask what color their socks are. This program is free and open to the public.
Information on how to login through hosting neighborhood library locations or how to login from a home computer to participate will be available on the Houston Public Library website at www.houstonlibrary.org/teen-read-month.
