LIBR-2018Readers' Advisory for Young Adults

Readers’ Advisory for Young Adults provides an introduction to books for teens from ages 12-18, including, genre fiction, contemporary fiction, nonfiction, alternative formats, and books for reluctant readers. Through individual and group exercises, we will discover methods to determine what a young person might like to read and how to suggest and promote materials to those reading interests. You will prepare and present different techniques for bringing teens and books together, including creating: read-alike lists, book trailers, teen library programs, and giving presentations on teen books and authors. Current issues affecting literature for teens will also be discussed.
