At each Annual Conference YALSA hosts the Printz Program and Reception, which honors the authors recognized by this prestigious award and celebrates young adult literature. This year, two of the honorees will not be able to attend in person due to extenuating circumstances. Instead of giving their speech live, they will be airing a videotaped message at the Printz Program. Markus Zusak and Marilyn Nelson are the two authors who are unable to attend this event. John Green, winner of the ’06 award for his book, Looking for Alaska, will be present to give his speech, as will Margo Lanagan. Tickets for this program may still be purchased online. They will also be available on site. If you have any questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to contact the YALSA office at -Beth Yoke
