The world of young adult literature is a dramatically dynamic one that, in the last decade, has become among the most vibrantly active in all of publishing. Each publishing season brings a plethora of new titles, new forms, and new formats, many of which require new methods of evaluation.

Keeping up with all these changes and the over 5,000 new titles flooding the market each year can be a full-time job. This webinar will help you identify new trends and know the best new titles for your collection development.

At the end of this one-hour webinar, participants will be familiar with current:

  • Trends informing the dynamic world of YA literature and publishing
  • New YA fiction – both novels of realism and genre fiction – that comprises “first purchases” for YA collections
  • Non-fiction for both recreational and classroom use
  • Graphic novels and comics
  • Adult books for young adults and New Adults

This webinar will be of interest to both public and school library staff with young adult collection development responsibilities.
