Teen Reading

Anyone who runs a teen book group won’t be surprised to hear that teens read differently from the rest of us.  For one thing,  they’re comfortable with different ways to “read”;  and for another,  they expect to participate in what they read.

The Young Adult Library Services Association held its first  YA Lit Symposium  in Nashville on November 7-9. The theme was “How We Read Now,” and among the presenters were librarians on the cutting edge of services to teen readers. If you didn’t get to attend, check here for  links to presentations and handouts.
