Realistic fiction books trending with local young readersĀ 

Although humorous picture books and middle-grade fantasy novels are two examples of reading genres that never fall out of favor with children, a local librarian says realistic fiction books are making a comeback.  Even though the Harry Potter series and more recently the Sutherland books about dragons had captured the hearts of teen readers the last couple decades, the trend of realism is making a strong coming back, according to Beth Lokken, youth services librarian from the Sturgeon Bay Library.  She says teen reading is all over the map these days but has come full circle.



The Summer Reads Program began earlier this month at all Door and Kewaunee County libraries.  The Sturgeon Bay Public Library is open from 9 am until 9 pm Monday through Thursday, Friday until 6 pm and Saturday until 5 pm.
