Urban Life

Sometimes teens/tweens read what their parents read and sometimes they shouldn’t.  Many welfaregrind-192x300of our Black adult patrons request urban life/fiction.  If you aren’t familiar with urban fiction, this cover says it all.  These books make Fifty Shades of Grey blush.

Fortunately there are urban life books for teens/tweens.  The Kimani Press imprint from Harlequin Teen have a series of books that feature Black teens.  If you’ve found yourself racking your brain trying to figure out how to get your “hanger outer” Black teens to read, have a special display of urban fiction books.  When the display is over, teens will come to the desk and ask about the books.
