Hello youth services library staff! I just got a great question that I thought many of you may be interested in knowing the answer:

Q: For the Oregon Reads 2014, are there specific dates for the program?  It there something selected for kids to read?

A1: No, there aren't specific dates-anytime throughout the year 2014.

A2: Yes, there are youth titles! Everyone Out Here Knows is a picture book appropriate for children, The Osage Orange Tree is graphic literature appropriate for teens, and Ask Me is also appropriate for teens-perhaps good material for a poetry slam! Find some resources for planning and implementing Oregon Reads 2014 on the website: http://oregonreads2014.com/.

"William Stafford may not have written many stories in his life, favoring poems and essays, but The Osage Orange Tree, this rare example, rings with the stark perfection of a master's love and care."

Ask Me: 100 Essential Poems (available late 2013)
by William Stafford, edited with an introduction by Kim Stafford

"These are verses gathered from the mountain of Stafford, poems that resound from one generation to another; they are poems of welcome and invitation, poems that expand our field of vision; they are wisdom poems, hard-earned poems, poems in conversation with loss and memory at a personal and global level."
- Brian Turner
