Big Library Read is back

October 2015 graphicBig Library Read is an international program that gives library customers worldwide unlimited simultaneous access to a popular ebook during the program dates. From 7 October – 21 October there are two titles on offer for tweens and teens.

The Door in the Hedge opens a door into an enchanted world in this collection of original and retold fairy tales.  Four short stories, two original and two cherished classics, take you into a magical world of whimsy, wonder, princesses and talking frogs.  In the Shadow of Blackbirds is a young adult historical fiction story of war, ghosts, friendship, mystery, love and perseverance. This coming-of-age tale takes you on a heroic journey through the eyes of Mary Shelley Black as she’s forced to face a world war, a deadly strain of flu and a troubled spirit who is desperate for help.

The Big Library Read program is made possible through a partnership between OverDrive, Open Road, publisher of Robin McKinley’s fairy tale short stories and Abrams Books, publisher of Cat Winters young adult historical fiction.
