Webcast Alert! Teen Read Week Book Buzz 2009

via email

DATE: Thursday, October 22, 2009 | TIME: 2:00–3:00 PM EDT | REGISTER TODAY

What better way to celebrate Teen Read Week than getting the inside scoop from YA publishers on their hottest new and forthcoming titles! The 2009 Teen Read Week theme is Read Beyond Reality @ your library, which encourages teens to “read something out of this world, just for the fun of it.” Now in its eleventh year, Teen Read Week is an initiative of the Young Adult Library Services Association (YALSA), whose mission is to advocate, promote and strengthen service to young adults as part of the continuum of total library service, and to support those who provide service to this population – that’s you!

Take this opportunity to engage your teens by inviting them to attend the webcast, either live or on-demand, and solicit their response. With over 60 titles slated for presentation, teens and youth services librarians will find dozens of books to put on their wish lists!
