    Contact: Teen Programming     mclteen@monmouthcountylib.org
   

An ongoing event, A Day in the Life of a Quaranteen asks for a written documentary of your life during the COVID-19 pandemic.  Entries can be essays, poems, journal entries, or written song describing your life, thoughts, and feelings about COVID-19. One to two submissions will be displayed in our quarterly teen newsletter.  One volunteer hour is possible per article for participants. Your article will need to be approved by a library staff member before you will be given service hours.  Articles need to follow the guidelines to be approved, and may be sent back to you if anything is missing.  

Age: Must be between grades 7-12

Library Card: Must have a valid Monmouth County Library Card. 

Service Hours Given: 1 hour per article submission upon library approval. 

Limit of two submissions per person.

Attention Parent/Guardian: It is highly recommended that your teen is responsible for all correspondence regarding the Teen Volunteer Program; starting with the review submission process and continuing throughout their volunteer service. This program strives to prepare your child for his/her first job. We feel that the more responsibility that volunteers have in the successful execution of completing their service, the better prepared he or she will be to apply for jobs and enter the workforce. When at all possible, please ask your teen to call, email, organize, and initiate!  Your cooperation is greatly appreciated.

Inheritance: A Memoir of Genealogy, Paternity, and Love by Dani Shapiro

What makes us who we are? What combination of memory, history, biology, experience, and that ineffable thing called the soul defines us? In the spring of 2016, through a genealogy website to which she had whimsically submitted her DNA for analysis, Dani Shapiro received the stunning news that her father was not her biological father. She woke up one morning and her entire history - the life she had lived - crumbled beneath her. Inheritance is a book about secrets within families, kept out of shame or self-protectiveness; secrets we keep from one another in the name of love. 

Moderated by Stephanie Laurino.

The books are real; the discussion is virtual. Place a hold and pick up the selection at your local branch. Limited eBook availability.

Sessions will be conducted on Webex. Register below and you will be emailed information about how to join the discussion.

Bowlaway by Elizabeth McCracken

Author Elizabeth McCracken will be joining the discussion!

From the day she is discovered unconscious in a New England cemetery at the turn of the twentieth century - with nothing but a bowling ball, a candlepin, and fifteen pounds of gold on her person - Bertha Truitt is an enigma to everyone in Salford, Massachusetts. She has no past to speak of, or at least none she is willing to reveal, and her mysterious origin scandalizes and intrigues the townspeople. But Bertha is plucky, tenacious, and entrepreneurial, and the bowling alley she opens quickly becomes Salford's most defining landmark - with Bertha its most notable resident. Bowlaway is both a stunning feat of language and a brilliant unraveling of a family's myths and secrets, its passions and betrayals, as well as the ties that bind and the rifts that divide.

Moderated by Rebecca Gokberk.

The books are real; the discussion is virtual. Place a hold and pick up the selection at your local branch. Limited eBook availability.

The Library Book by Susan Orlean

On the morning of April 29, 1986, a fire alarm sounded in the Los Angeles Public Library. By the time the fire was extinguished, it had consumed 400,000 books and damaged 700,000 more. But more than 30 years later, the mystery remains: Did someone purposefully set fire to the library - and if so, who? Orleans also traces the history of libraries in the United States, and the often quirky individuals who were the predecessors of today’s professional librarians.

Moderated by Jeanmarie Kantor, Library Headquarters 

The books are real; the discussion is virtual. Place a hold and pick up the selection at your local branch. No eBooks available.

Pieces of Her by Karin Slaughter

Andrea knows everything about her mother, Laura. She knows she's spent her whole life in the small beachside town of Belle Isle; she knows she's never wanted anything more than to live a quiet life as a pillar of the community; she knows she's never kept a secret in her life. Because we all know our mothers, don't we? But all that changes when a trip to the mall explodes into violence and Andrea suddenly sees a whole new side to Laura. Because it turns out that before Laura was Laura, she was someone completely different. For nearly thirty years she's been hiding from her previous identity, lying low in the hope that no one would ever find her. But now she's been exposed, and nothing will ever be the same again.

Hymns of the Republic: The Story of the Final Year of the American Civil War by S.C. Gwynne

S.C. Gwynne focuses on the period when Ulysses S. Grant takes command in March 1864 to the surrender of Robert E. Lee at Appomattox a year later. Gwynne offers new insights about major components of the war including the battle between Lee and Grant; the advent of 180,000 black soldiers; William Tecumseh Sherman’s March to the Sea; the rise of Clara Barton; the election of 1864, and the dramatic final events of the war, including the murder of Abraham Lincoln.

Lady Clementine by Marie Benedict

In 1909, Clementine Churchill steps off a train with her new husband, Winston. An angry woman emerges from the crowd to attack, shoving him in the direction of an oncoming train. Just before he stumbles, Clementine grabs him by his suit jacket. This will not be the last time Clementine Churchill saves her husband. Lady Clementine is the ferocious story of the brilliant and ambitious woman beside Winston Churchill, the story of a partner who did not flinch through the sweeping darkness of war, and who would not surrender either to expectations or to enemies.

Moderated by Stephanie Laurino, Library HQ.
