YALSA is excited to announce that the 2022 Call for proposals for the YA Symposium is now open. The Symposium will be held November 4-6 in Baltimore, MD.
This year’s theme is “Rediscovering Our Charm: Supporting Teens and Each Other in Our Libraries”
Celebrate the wonderful community of librarians at an event that captures the collaboration, excitement and innovation of what we do best! We will explore new ways to uplift and support both ourselves and our teens through services and stories. Join YALSA, librarians, and YA authors in Baltimore, the home of Margaret A. Edwards, as we come together to learn, share and honor her vision as courageous champions of young adults.
We are looking for creative, engaging proposals for sessions that embrace the 2022 theme. Sessions are one hour long, but you can utilize a variety of formats from traditional PowerPoint/Slides presentations to panel discussions, or discussion groups.
If you are interested in helping the YA community rediscover their charm, please submit a proposal. The deadline for submissions is Thursday, May 12, 2022. Visit the submission portal to see what is required.
