Support Teen Literature Day, April 19 April 12, 2007

Posted by sneaks in display topics, spring, YA.

From YALSA‘s MySpace page (yes, YALSA is on MySpace):

Join YALSA in celebrating the first ever Support Teen Literature Day, April 19, 2007!

Librarians and teens all across the country are encouraged to participate in Support Teen Literature Day to help raise awareness among the general public that young adult literature is a vibrant, growing genre with much to offer today’s teens.

For ways to participate in Support Teen Literature Day, check out YALSA’s display ideas, activities, drawing and contests.

In the meantime, be sure to tell everyone your favorite recent books on YALSA’s MySpace!

Though the year is young, don’t forget to nominate your favorites for the YALSA’s 2008 booklists and book awards!

Recent publicity has highlighted the high-quality books that teens have to choose from nowadays, and there’s a new edition of ALA’s Best Books for Young Adults coming soon.

Octavian Nothing, the Montmorency books, Impulse, The Book Thief, Joker, and American Born Chinese are just a few of the titles that leap to mind when we think of recent young adult books that are both appealing and thought-provoking. Bring out your best teen lit for this event!
