From the Harford County Public Library:
Harford County Public Library celebrated local teen writers with a special Book This! release party at the Aberdeen Library on February 28. During the month of January, teens wrote and submitted short stories to read set in Harford County for the Book This! Short Story Publishing Competition.
Teen librarians and local authors chose the winning submissions to be included in a published book that was distributed to all the teens at the release party. The final compilation was titled Destination and Other Stories, named after the winning story by Hannah Humphries.
Over 50 attendees at the Book This! release party gathered to hear from the teens who were interviewed and spoke about their story’s inspiration. The finished publication included 10 stories by authors Ellie Pearl, Bella Shatz, Shannon Curry, Genae Hatcher, Abby Zylka, Emilly Plack, Sloane Schwalenberg, Rylee Powers, and Hannah Rogers. The published book will be available at Harford County Public Library branches.
