Big news in YALSA this week! The 2017 Teen Read Week site was launched earlier this week with the theme “Unleash Your Story.” Library staff, afterschool providers, and educators should attempt to leverage 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 today! The stars of the upcoming movie Everything, Everything announced the titles in a video you can see here! Teens across the country can vote on their favorite titles between Aug. 15 and Teen Read Week, which will be celebrated Oct. 8-14. The winners will be announced the week after. You can view an annotated list of nominees here (pdf).
