In celebration of Teen Read Week, the Daniel Boone Regional Library invited area young adults to share their life story… in just six words. I’m excited to share that we received over 200 submissions! Choosing the contest winners proved a very difficult task for our panel of staff judges. In honor of all our participants’ efforts, we’ve compiled a downloadable booklet (PDF) of all eligible entries. These memoirs will give you an appreciation of what it is to express yourself in such an abbreviated creative space.
