Young adults., Libraries., reading promotion


In any given year, up to four branches within the HPL system may participate in Halifax Reads(HR!) Each branch will select four young adults between the ages of 13 and 18 to participat in a localpanel to defend their book and challenge others. Participants will be offered a variety of Canadian young adult novels in order to choose which book to defend. This selection will differ from branch to branch to prevent the same book from being defended by more than one participant in the final round.
