Murchison Library: Teen Reading - Spoiler Alert!

Monday 8th April-Friday 10th May 2019

Get your inner comic artist out and enter our teen reading competition!

Spoiler Alert is a teen reading competition with a comic element.

Your challenge is to summarise a book you've read as pithily* as possible. Using John Atkinson's comics as a base, draw the book you've read with the title and caption it underneath.

Enter as often as you like. You can draw and enter at the library, you can take a picture of your entry and email it in, or you can post it to the Tasman District Libraries Facebook page:

John Atkinson's Abridged Classics: Brief Summaries of Books You Were Supposed to Read But Probably Didn't will be available at your library to help you get started.

There are prizes to be won, so get drawing!

*In as few words, and as accurately, as possible.
