Over the years, we’ve offered plenty of British writers, including annual servings of Shakespeare and quite a variety of Arthur Conan Doyle and Terry Pratchett. A couple of years ago, the Audie Book of the Year, MANDELA: AN AUDIO HISTORY, brought voices from South Africa. Maori novelist Witi Ihimaera’s THE WHALE RIDER was among the titles we offered in 2012.
These are just a very few among the robust catalog of international books available to teen listeners. And this is the perfect month to remember to use your library card to check some out if you didn’t download them across the years. If you work in a library, it's also a good time to discover the Global Literature in Libraries Iniative, so you can help teens find more international voices locally.
