Upcoming YALSA Events

The 2017 Teen Read Week site was launched recently with the theme "Unleash Your Story." Library staff, afterschool providers, and educators can use this theme to encourage teens to write, share and tell their own stories as well as find stories, biographies, autobiographies, folktales, and more in their local library!

YALSA also announced the Teens' Top Ten nominations. The stars of the upcoming movie Everything, Everything (based on the YA book of the same title by Nicola Yoon) announced the titles in a video you can see below!

Teens across the country can vote on their favorite titles between August 15th and Teen Read Week, which will be celebrated October 8th – 14th. The winners will be announced the week after. You can view an annotated list of nominees here (PDF).
