Thanks to everyone who came to our end of Teen Summer Reading party, the Zombie Lock-In! We had fun playing games like Minute to Win It and on the Wii, made Zombie Barbies and talked to authors Carrie Ryan and Ilsa Bick. We also got made up to look like zombies and then danced to Michael Jackson's Thriller: take a look! And here are photos of the lock-in.
