Throwback Fiction: Childhood Favorites Revisited: Home

About the Display

To kick off the 2022-2023 academic year, Bird Library has curated a collection of Throwback Fiction for College Students! The display features titles from the early 21st century to the present, honoring popular novels and series that have a special place in the hearts of Generation Z! Topics include a variety of Children's Literature, Teen Novels, Young Adult Fiction, and Classic Titles for high school students. Incorporate your favorite titles into your academic research with the Literary Criticism titles provided. We have also provided a list of popular Musical Theatre titles, as well as Film and Documentary databases the library provides. Search SUMMON for more sources pertaining to criticism and analysis on your favorite novels and shows. 

Please visit the First Floor of Bird Library to see the physical display!
