YALSA Lit Symposium – WOW!

And a great time was had by all!

What an interesting group of presenters and authors.’  This Symposium really brought the mind’s focus around to incorporating diversity in all aspects of your collection – print, non-print, and web-based.’ ‘ I particularly liked the fact that some of the authors gave us lists’ of their favorite diverse books (Cynthea Liu – http://www.cynthealiu.com) and that booktalks were everywhere.

I’ came home with lots of lists to use in buying and creating my own more diverse resource lists and in making displays.’ I came home energized and excited’ to try my own’ 30 books in 30 minutes program and Yack and Snack book discussion group.’ ‘ I came home with determination to promote my audio collection to teachers as well as students.’  And I came home with two autographed copies of Pat Mora’s Dizzy in Your Eyes: Poems About Love‘  (Knopf, 2010) for my high school boys who will copy’ the poems’ for their girlfriends.

Hurray YALSA!’  Conference job well done.
