Happy Teen Read Week, everyone!
If you do not receive emails from a YALSA listserv, you might have missed all the excellent information that Stephanie Kuenn, YALSA Communications Specialist, emailed us earlier this week on Teen Read Week. But don’t sweat if you missed it, I have posted here again for you:

I know this is a late post on conference sessions, but forgive me, I didn’t want to leave this out.
I attended a fantastic session on teens reviewing materials. The representation of speakers was fantastic-publishers, Linda Benson from VOYA (it was neat to see her in person!), and the panel of teen reviewers which worked with very passionate YA Galley Group Advisors Diane Tuccillo and Di Herald.
Some of the projects mentioned included:
Teens Top Ten and VOYA Teen Reviewers
I received my letter in the mail this week regarding the YA Galley project. Is your library participating? Any VOYA reviewers want to comment what it’s like to work with a teen reviewer?
