For as long as humanity has existed, we’ve spun tales of great warriors, terrifying monsters and powerful gods. Every culture on earth has their own stories that have withstood the test of time to be retold again and again throughout generations. Myths and Legends Day is a celebration of the uniquely human desire to explain the unknown through inspiring and entertaining stories of heroes, villains and mystical things just beyond our understanding. Celebrate Myths and Legends Day at the Library by checking out these Young Adult adaptations of Norse, Greek, Chinese and African myths. Teens are sure to love these tales of young heroes who embark on dangerous quests to overcome great challenges and reach their goals. They learn and grow along the way, and by the end of the of their journey, make their own mark on history and become a legend.
