Teen Reading Lounge, an interactive book discussion series created by Pennsylvania Humanities Council (PHC) for public libraries to encourage teens to read and talk about literature that matters to them, engage teen audiences in out-of-school time learning in the humanities and increase the capacity of libraries to conduct public humanities programming for teen audiences. Session attendees will learn about best practices in building a successful humanities-based program and how collaboration leads to a successful and rewarding program with lasting benefits. Specific examples from a pilot program in Western Pennsylvania will be shared during the program.
