This Week at TLT
We hosted Victoria Schwab on her blog tour for her latest novel The Unbound. Read our review and her answers to our not at all stalkerish questions.
In our Sunday Reflection, Karen talks about the 5 episode season of Torchwood, Children of Earth, and it’s uncanny look at how we really feel about the disadvantaged members of our society.
We combine Divergent enthusiasm with Rainbow Loom fever for this week’s Teen Program in a Box.
An Introduction to our School and Public Library Collaboration series with Naomi Bates.
DRUMROLL please! Our first Google Hangout was a great success as Karen spoke with Carrie Mesrobian, Christa Desir, and Trish Doller about Sexual Violence in YA Lit.
An introduction to a new feature – Diversity Discussions with Jayla.
Previously at TLT
Karen reviewed The Archived by Victoria Schwab.
Around the Web
The first official trailer for The Fault in Our Stars was released this week to much fanfare – and also a great breakdown by PopWatch on Entertainment Weekly.
If you have Hulu Plus, you can watch Teen Wolf, season 3, episode 13, right now – for those of us without cable. Sorry, I love this show!
Here’s an interesting infographic on the Characteristics of 21st Century Learning – thoughts?
