This week, Liz and Erin dove into two short story collections, Black Enough: Stories of Being Young and Black in America edited by Ibi Ziboi and Fresh Ink edited by Lamar Giles. They talk about great stories, reading diverse books as youth compared to today, and reading across identity markers. They also answer two questions from the Jar of Teen Angst: what was a big world problem you worried about as a teen? And what kind of a student were you? And one #librarylife question: what are the best and worst parts of your job?

And don't forget, you can join the conversation, share stories, ask questions about library life or add questions to our Jar of Teen Angst by emailing us at teentitletalk@gmail.com.
