The article Life After Potter, which now appears on the Today Show web site, is an excerpt from Holly Koelling’s introduction to the 3rd edition of Best Books for Young Adults. (To be published by ALA Editions in August.)

Check out the article and then if you are at conference, follow-up on your reading by attending the program, Trend Setters in Teen Literature that will be held on Sunday, June 24, from 10:30 AM – Noon, in room 140 A/B, Washington Convention Center.

The program will focus on trends in teen literature as seen in the first seven years of the current decade’s Best Books for Young Adults lists. Following the discussion of trends, a panel of authors and editors from Simon & Schuster, Hyperion, and Random House will discuss what they see as future directions of teen lit. Speakers include Random House editor Wendy Lamb and Rene Saldana, Jr.; Simon & Schuster editor David Gale and Ellen Wittlinger; Hyperion editor Brenda Bowen and James Sturm, Director of the Center for Cartoon Studies.

    I attended the EXCELLENT program “Trend setters in teen literature” but didn’t catch all the names of the speakers. Am trying to find a list of the speakers (and anything else from that program). If anyone could point me in the right direction, I’d be grateful. Thanks.

    I would also be interested in finding a full list of presenters for this program.
