The library will be hosting an Author event in September where you can rub elbows with local authors who write for teens.  One of our featured authors is C.S. Shride, winner of the Colorado Book Award.


Lucy Dakota is one cool teenager. She climbs mountains, braves roiling white water, rappels off cliffs and travels the world! Best of all, she isn't afraid to be herself. But it wasn't always this way. Lucy's story is my story. It's your story. It's anyone who's ever been bullied's story. Anyone who's ever been pressured to do something they didn't want to's story. Anyone who's ever wanted desperately to fit in or belong's story. Lucy Dakota isn't different from other teens - she is just like them.

Meet C.S. Shride at Books and Bites at the Arvada Library on September 20th, 6-8:30.
