Peters Township Public Library hosted local author events as part of Pennsylvania Library Association's "PA Forward Speak Up!" This event was planned as an initiative to place Pennsylvania authors and illustrators in the spotlight, increasing support for libraries everywhere. "Pick-up Lines That Work: Powerful Openings in Young Adult Books" was offered for teens 13 and up, as well as adults. Young-adult authors Joshua David Bellin, Patricia Easton, Stephanie Keyes, Carla Mooney and Leah Pileggi discussed a book's pick-up line: what made the reader turn to page two of their favorite YA read. A group activity was included in the program.
What keeps a reader turning the pages of their favorite books? YA authors shared their thoughts at an event highlighting local writers.
