Local libraries to celebrate Teen Read Week

-A A +A

PERRY COUNTY – In celebration of Teen Read Week Oct. 13 through Oct. 19, the unofficial “Hunger Games Young Adult Survival Skills Program” will be presented at the Perry County Public Library-Tell City branch.
From 5 to 7 p.m. Oct. 15, Creek Stewart, who lives in Anderson and owns Wilderness Survival School, or one of his primitive skills instructors will teach young adults 10 to 18 years of age survival skills based on the strategies from the Hunger Games series.
The course includes two hours of survival skills instruction. Students will start indoors with basic survival instruction and discussions of Hunger Games survival strategy, then they will move outside to learn Hunger Games Survival skills hands-on.
Each young adult will receive an orange sling survival back-pack with items to use throughout the program, and they will get to take these items home with them.  
Those attending must pre-register for this program. There will be a limit of 25 young adults.
Creek Stewart is an author and survival specialist who became an Eagle Scout at the age of 14.
He taught his very first survival class at 21. He now owns a 10,000 square foot survival lodge and training facility called “Willow Haven Outdoor” that sits on 21 acres in central Indiana. There, he teaches regular classes to individuals, families, government agencies and corporate groups to ready them for sudden survival scenarios, from natural disasters to terrorist attacks, to modern and primitive wilderness skills.
He frequently provides on-air commentary on the topic of survival preparedness.  
He is a regular segment contributor on WISH-TV 8 in Indianapolis. For more information, visit www.WillowHavenOutdoor.com.
Stop by the Perry County Public Library in Tell City to register for this program and to receive your ticket for admittance.  
The program is free of charge and is sponsored by the Friends of the Library.
After the program from 7 to 8 p.m., refreshments will be provided to participants.
