YALSA’s Young Adult Literature Symposium

The Young Adult Library Services Association (YALSA), a division of the American Library Association, is holding it’s forth annual Young Adult Literature Symposium in Austin, TX on November 14-16, 2014.  This year’s theme is Keeping it Real: Finding the True Teen Experience in YA Literature. More than forty-five authors are planning to participate in the symposium, including Lauren Oliver, Maggie Stiefvater, and Jacqueline Woodson – just to name a few–and you don’t have to be a librarian to get in on the fun! If you’re a fan of young adult fiction, be sure to check out the website for the preliminary program and list of participating authors.  The symposium isn’t until November, but registration is already open and early bird pricing is available.
