Historical Fiction doesn't have to mean ancient history. Books set in the 1960s, 1970s, 1980s and even the 1990s count as "historical fiction" as well. Inspired by a recent patron request for modern historical fiction, we in the Teen Department have dreamed up a display of historical books set in more recent times. True you won't find anything here about medieval castles or ancient battles. But you will be able to read about the era of peace & love, big hair, and that Gen-X "Whatever" attitude.
So Stop by the Teen Area's magazine room and check out our display of Modern Historical Fiction books. Need a title from a specific era? The books are grouped by decade for browsing ease. Remember, we couldn't fit everything we have on the display shelf, so we've included a bookmark listing more titles. Don't see what you want? Ask us! --AJB
