Teen Read Week is Monday through Oct. 23.
This year's theme, Books with Beat, encourages teens to read a variety of materials, including poetry, audiobooks, books about music, and more.
Parents of teens are encouraged to support Teen Read Week at home with these ideas:
Visit the public or school library with your teen.
Set aside time each night for the family to read.
Give books or magazine subscriptions as a gift.
Share your favorite book with your teen.
Go online with your teen to learn about new books or authors. A good place to start is YALSA's Booklists and Book Awards page, www.ala.org/yalsa/booklists.
Join a book discussion group at the school or public library.
