What’s your favorite YALSA memory?

The fall issue of Young Adult Library Services will feature articles and columns about YALSA’s 50th Anniversary, and we want to compile an oral history of YALSA for it, so we need you to tell us the stories that don’t always make it into the official history.

  • What was it like to attend the first Printz Award reception? The first Edwards Award?
  • What’s your best conference memory — or your worst?
  • What other YALSA memories do you want to share?

Share your memories on the 50th Anniversary Wiki on the YALS Memories page, under the heading “YALSA Stories ” or by clicking “Discussion” at the top of the page. We’ll take the funniest, most interesting, and thoughtful responses to reprint in YALS. Make sure to leave your name and email address with your entry, so we can get in touch with you and credit you properly.

Deadline for submissions is July 1, 2007.

Questions? Contact Editor Valerie Ott at vott724@yahoo.com or YALSA Communications Specialist Stephanie Kuenn at skuenn@ala.org.
