TEEN READ WEEK is a national literacy initiative created by the Young Adult Library Services Association [YALSA] and runs from October 12-18th. Willow Shields completed a PSA in support of this initiative. Hunger Games actress Willow Shields, who plays Primose Everdeen, encourages you to celebrate Teen Read Week October 12-18, 2014 by visiting your library and find a great read to “Turn Dreams into Reality.”
Willow Shields PSA:
Willow’s PSA will be shared with 5,100 library members across the country to use as a tool to help get the word out about Teen Read Week on a national and local level. YALSA will place the PSA online and encourage the library community to share. In addition to the PSA, Willow also recorded an on-camera introduction to outline the ‘Top Ten’ list of winning books being voted on during Teen Read Week. That video will be placed on their website and social media pages at the end of the next week.
