The Hidden Joys of Biographies
Tatum of Teens Online
Biographies have a bad name among teens. They seem like something a history teacher might assign you to read for a project. However, if you find the right subject, a biography or autobiography could be very enjoyable.
I just finished
an autobiography by one of my favorite musicians, Marilyn Manson. It might have helped that he was a journalist/writer before he became a musician, but his writing was very engaging. It was a completely different experience reading about his life in his own words than what other people have written either in books or on the Internet.
I think that everyone can find a biography that they will enjoy based on their interests. For the sports fan there are countless books on sports players and coaches. For animal lovers there are books on racehorses, such as Seabiscuit or Man O’ War, dogs, cats, and many other animals. For music lovers, of course, there are countless biographies of musicians of the past or present. These are just a few examples of the different types of biographies you can find at the library.
