Throughout the summer, teens from Broken Arrow and the rest of Tulsa County were given an opportunity to submit artwork and writing to the Broken Arrow Library Teen Zine. On July 30, a group of BA teens met under the supervision of Miss Hannah and Mrs. Rachel to put together a work of genius. The 2015 Broken Arrow Teen Zine stems from the combined efforts of 15 teens who submitted and/or edited the Zine into existence. They used the library Convenience Center to make copies & shrink things down to size, decorated with washi tape and markers, and paired artwork with writing. They picked an order for the submissions that made the Zine flow as you read and worked together in editorial bliss to make their creation one of the most exciting publications to come out of Broken Arrow all summer. Visit the Broken Arrow library in downtown BA to see the Zine in person, or check out the attached digital version below.
Most likely you remember Lane's illustrations in the classic book, The True story of the 3 Little PIgs by A.Wolf. With over 14 books to his credit, both picture books and non-fiction he brings to teens a book about Augie Hobble. A paranormal event, an amusement park and more intertwine in this story. A great summer read, 4 stars for sure ****
