Calling all Chicago area teen librarians! If you have teens with opinions on the Best Fiction for Young Adults (and who doesn’t?), we want to hear them in a very big way.
The YALSA Local Arrangements committee for ALA Annual in Chicago, June 28-July 1, 2013, is currently recruiting youth participants to give feedback on nominated books at the Best Fiction for Young Adults Teen Session. It will be on Saturday, June 29, 2013. A list of titles can be found here.
The BFYA Teen Session is one of the highlights of the YALSA events during Conference weekend, and its success hinges on the willingness of local librarians to bring their teens down to the big day and the shared energy and enthusiasm of the teens they bring.
Interested librarians and teen group leaders are encouraged to fill out the online form. It’s a tremendous opportunity, and we hope you’ll apply.
