YALSA’s YA Lit Symposium will take place Nov. 14 – 16, 2014 in Austin, TX, at the Hyatt Regency. Come hang out with YALSA and 500 library workers, educators, researchers, authors and publishers to explore what’s ‘real’ in the world of teen literature! Highlights include a Book Blitz where attendees receive free, autographed books, and the chance to meet and mingle with over 50 YA authors at various receptions and sessions. Register online and view the preliminary program at www.ala.org/yalitsymposium. Registration discounts are available for students and members of the Texas Library Association and Texas Association of School Librarians. We hope to see you in Austin next month!
Karin Perry and I are doing a preconference on nonfiction with Steve Sheinkin (currently one of the NBA Finalists), Kelly Milner Halls, and Susan Campbell Bartoloetti. It should be a wonderful morning before the conference opens.
