Rock the Drop! Support Teen Lit Day

Support Teen Lit Day: April 14, 2011.  
(Sponsored by Readergirlz)

Here's how:

1.  Copy the bookplate below and paste/tape it in a new or gently used YA book.

2.  Drop the book in a public place where a teen might find it.  Try a park bench, a bus seat, a lunch table.

3.  Take a photo of your dropped book.

4.  Post this on your blog and link back to Readergirlz (plus send your stories and photos to them!)

5.  Be creative and have fun.

I did a similar activity with my library club last year and we had so much fun sharing our book drop stories.  I want to do it again with my students this year but this time I am going ask the students to take pictures.

  1. That's wonderful! Too bad they chose to schedule it on Poem In Your Pocket Day (or perhaps poets.org created the conflict?). Competing literary events: egads!
    Can't wait to see the photos, and you've inspired me to bring a book to drop along with all the poems I'll be scattering through town today!


I look forward to your comments and interactions! Join in the conversation.
