On Saturday, the Bridgeville Public Library will find out what happens when you give teenagers a pack of Sharpies and 20 boxes of books to scribble in.
The result could be some interesting poetry.
At least, that’s what the new young adult librarian, Jessica Lamb, hopes, according to a Pittsburgh Tribune-Review article:
With each bold stroke, they’ll use the remaining words to compose a poem, using someone else’s words.
Lamb found the idea in Newspaper Blackout, a book by Austin Kleon. She realized the same idea would work with many of the old books the library was storing.
“We have 20 boxes of old books from the used book store,” she said.
