YAYA was a little lean last Tuesday. It's rough on teens to have final exams and many of the YAYA gang were in the middle of them. Hope everyone did well.
With those who came, we had a really great meeting. We discussed The Lightning Thief by Rick Riordan. If action/adventure/fantasy is your genre, you will love this book. I need to poll all YAYA, but I think our final meeting will consist of a trip to the Carolina Theater to catch The Lightning Thief in May. It has Pierce Brosnan and Uma Thurman in it. Whoo hoo!
We are continuing to receive great entries for The Alexander Muse teen lit magazine. Keep them pouring in until March 1, Alexander County teens!
We are very blessed to have some awesome judges already on board for the magazine contest- poets Bud Caywood and Scott Owens; artists Wayne Parmenter, Heather Friday and Nina Hardison; Bethlehem author, Mike Harrison, and everyone's favorite lit teacher, Dan Miller. Thanks to all of those involved!
Hope you stay dry. It's yucky outside today. Check back soon!
