YALSA Literature Symposium


I am so excited to be attending my first YALSA Literature Symposium this weekend! I love attending library conferences. I can geek out with my fellow librarians, talk teen lit all weekend, and get excited about program ideas and library services for teens.

Be sure to attend my wonderful friends Angie, Drea, Katie, and Kelly (with help from Abby)   presentation on Contemporary Lit-Get Real: Contemporary Young Adult Fiction as the Next Big Thing. They are going to be awesome!

And if you're attending, be sure to say hi!

  2. It's nice it's right in your own backyard so to speak. I'll be there and presenting too. Can't wait to be done with that angle of it all but looking forward to book talk all weekend.

  3. I'll be there! I was in a Young Adult Literature class at Mizzou that you spoke to (it was an online session about 2 years ago) and once I became a teen librarian, I remembered your blog and came to visit. I lived in St. Louis last year and visit often so I'm thrilled that it's so close to home. I would love if you could follow my blog also: http://wildaboutteenbooks.blogspot.com See you soon!
