POP Culture Round-Up Announced! (Plus: Films, Scares and Glee)

10 Nov

The POP Culture Round-Up is a new feature created in response to YOUR demands for more posts about teen pop culture!

At the YALSA conference I attended last weekend, one librarian suggested that those who want to keep up with teen pop culture simply need to have teen magazines routed past their desk before being released to the public. For those whose libraries don’t yet subscribe to teen magazines, check out the magazines’ online presence. for example, Sugar magazine runs Sugar Scape, a website brimming with celebrity gossip and fashion advice. They even have a Sugar teen book club (the current Hot Read is, of course, Pretty Little Liars). In fact, right now Sugar is looking for new teen book reviewers!

Onward, to the first POP Culture Round-Up!

Don’t forget that I Am Number Four (a film based on a book of the same name) is coming to theaters in February! Within the next couple of weeks I’ll post some teen event ideas based on I Am Number Four . In the meantime, enjoy the film trailer:

Teen Librarian has launched 12 Months of Halloween (including the excellent Gothic Archies video featured below). Read the 12 Months of Halloween feature, an interview with horror/urban fantasy author Rachel Vincent.

Lee Wind (“I’m Here. I’m Queer. What the Hell Do I Read?”) reports on Kurt from Glee’s first gay kiss and the potential to have multiple gay characters on the show.

Last but not least, in the (highly unlikely) case that you missed it, the first part of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows will be released on 19 November, and part 2 will be released in July 2011. More Harry Potter-themed program/event ideas coming soon, because yes, many teens still love Harry Potter.

    Reading teen magazines is a great way to keep up to date with youth culture, I also like to read certain youth media blogs to stay current, including jsyk.com. Teen Gossip, and MTV Geek.
