Mark your calendars!  St. Louis will be hosting the YALSA 2012 Symposium November 2-4.  The theme is “The Future of Young Adult Literature:  Hit Me with the Next Big Thing.”

There is still plenty of time to send in your proposals for programs or paper presentations.  We want to know what you believe will be the developing and evolving trends in young adult literature.  Let your voice be heard about why and how the youth of today will interact with new materials and formats.

Enhance your experience by visiting http://yalitsymposium12.ning.com/ Updates about the symposium will be posted as they become available.   Continue to look for information posted on the YALSA Blog and The Hub.

While in St. Louis, find time to see some of the Downtown attractions, including the Gateway Arch, City Museum and St. Louis Union Station.  If you have extra time to explore, take in the grandeur of Forest Park and its many free museums, Missouri Botanical Garden or The Delmar Loop.
