Looking for Book Trailers
Many of you have seen some of the book trailers on Amazon. Maryjo, a part-time librarian who works at both the Junior and Adult desks, created a book trailer for her graduate course. This reminded me that I had a teen program a few years back where we created book trailers. Have any of you created book trailers that I could use on our web page? Contact me, Mrs. Harrigan, at 203-797-4528 or email. I would like to explore posting videos trailers on the web page.
The Next teen book discussion is Thursday, May 19 from 5:30 to 6:30 pm in the Craft Corner on the 2nd floor, Junior Library. We will discuss "An Ember in the Ashes" by Sabaa Tahir. The free copies have been taken, but there are copies available to check out. This is our last discussion until September.
"Laia is a Scholar living under the iron-rule of the Martial Empire. When her brother is arrested for treason, Laia goes undercover as a slave at the empire's greatest military academy in exchange for assistance from rebel Scholars who claim that they will help to save her brother from execution."
