I am working on my book discussion report post for later today, but I didn't want to forget to remind you all of what a great deal ARRT has on October 11th:
Please join us for the "Crossover Connection: Linking Your Adult and Teen Collections,” presented by Amy Alessio, Teen Librarian at Schaumburg Township District Library and co-author of A Year of Programs for Teens, and Dan Schnepf, Teen Librarian at Schaumburg Township District Library.
The program takes place on Tuesday, October 11, from 1:30 – 3:30 p.m., at the Schaumburg Township District Library, 130 South Roselle Road, Schaumburg. The cost of the program is $15.00.
Please send your completed form and check made out to "Adult Reading Round Table" to Debbie Walsh, Head of Adult Services, Geneva Public Library, 127 James St., Geneva, IL 60134, by October 4.
You can click here for the PDF with signup form. BPL Display Guru John and I will both be there. Those of us on the ARRT Steering Committee have also prepared a great YA Crossover bibliography to go with the program. Thanks to Monica Harris for editing it.
The YA to Adult crossover read is a VERY hot trend right now. Even publishers are getting in on the trend. Random House has set up this page highlighting their best 2011 teen crossover reads. There is also a great blog on the topic as well as many people making their own lists out there.
Seriously, why haven't you signed up yet? I hope to see you there. Bring your YA staff with you.
