Red Dirt Reads 2022-23

Red Dirt Reads is a list of recently published titles selected by Edmond middle school librarians; they include a variety of genres (fantasy, realistic, survival, etc.). 

This program is similar to the Sequoyah Book Award from the state of Oklahoma, but geared more specifically toward Edmond students.

Librarians in the district will promote the titles to students, encourage students to read at least three of the titles from the list, and then vote for their favorite titles.
