This year YALSA had a very successful YA Services Symposium in Salt Lake City. It was well attended with 500 attendees from across the US and Canada. The Symposium had a great variety of talks and 33 authors attended across the conference, with 26 authors being part of the Book Blitz. YALSA raised over $3000 to benefit Friends of YALSA. Friends of YALSA supports $14, 095 in grants, awards, and scholarships. For a great description of the content of the Symposium check out this blog post by Rebecca Weber. The call for proposals is now open for the 2019 YA Services Symposiums. Submit a proposal by February 1st! Come join YALSA in Memphis next November!
