Here at the library, we’ve noticed a new trend in teen publishing. Yup, you guessed it, steampunk is on the rise. What is it you ask? School Library Journal says, “Steampunk is both speculative fiction that imagines technology evolved from steam-powered cogs and gears–instead of from electricity and computers–and a movement that fosters a do-it-yourself attitude and a love of beautifully crafted, yet functional, objects.” Hmm, that means these books will have lots of fantastic flying air machines, top hats, and clock parts used to construct useful objects. In other words, it will be visually delightful! Click here to see a list of steampunk titles available at a library near you!
