The Delirium Contest and Experiment
If you read my letter to Lauren Oliver that I posted yesterday, you know that I love this series and believe it has important implications for the times we live in. Many times librarians contact me and ask advice about starting a teen book club. My number 1 recommendation: find the right book. I believe this is the right book. And it is definitely the right time.
So, I am going to encourage everyone to read and discuss this great series with a book giveaway. I will donate a copy of Delirium and Pandemonium to two libraries and all you have to do is . . .
1) Sign up to be entered to win by agreeing to have a book discussion of these two titles. Just leave a comment saying that you will and
2) Agree to submit The 2012 Project pictures of your book discussion and a guest blog post about how the discussion went including questions you asked, how the teens responded, etc.
So, if you are interested, leave a comment by March 7th. Remember, you need to agree to have a book discussion group/club around this title and share pics and a blog post about your experience – let’s say by the end of May, the school year (although it would be a great activity to have for Banned Books Week).
