Teen Advisory Council
This month’s Teen Advisory Council will feature a free journaling workshop for high school age students with Nora Carpenter, young adult author of The Edge of Anything and editor of Rural Voices: 15 Authors Challenge Assumptions About Small-Town America. Free registration is required, email Ashley at firstname.lastname@example.org to register.
High school age students are encouraged to join our Teen Advisory Council (TAC). This group meets on the second Wednesday of each month at 6:30 pm at Bookmarks. They discuss books and help plan events for teens at Bookmarks. They often introduce authors at events and have advanced access to new and upcoming books. Email email@example.com to learn more.
Please note: The Bookmarks team processes each order individually, including event registrations. Within one day of your order placement, a team member will register you for the event and you will receive a separate email (to this same email address) with the event login and password. Although we do our best to process same-day event orders, if your order is placed within 24 hours of an event start time, we cannot guarantee that you will receive event log in information in time to watch the event. For Crowdcast events, you can access the recording after the live broadcast.
