Each year Operation Teen Book Drop--an annual event started by our own readergirlz--delivers about 10,000 new books to teens in need. In 2008 and 2009, rgz, YALSA and GuysLitWire worked with publishers to deliver 20,000 books to teens in hospitals.
This year, another 10,000 books will go to teens on Native American Reservations and tribal lands, with help from If I Can Read, I Can Do Anything.
We can get involved in the fun by pledging to drop a YA novel in a public place on April 15, which also happens to be Support Teen Literature Day. When you do, please tweet about it and help spread the word about the importance of teen literature.
