Friday Spotlight: It’s Prom Time!

on May 18, 2012

Looking at the new issues of our teen area magazines, I had a realization. Yup, it’s that time of the year. Prom. Whether you love it or hate it, it’s here! And to go along with it–some books about proms. Perfect proms. Not so perfect proms. Even zombie proms…

Pssst…these titles also will go along with the upcoming Teen Summer Program theme…Own the Night…stay tuned for more about that!
