  • Are you familiar with the latest trends in young adult literature?
  • Are you looking for new authors?
  • Do you need a list of the latest “hot” YA books?
  • Do you want recommendations for the best adult and New Adult titles for YAs?

The world of young adult literature is a dynamic one that has become one of the most vibrant areas 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 these changes and the 5,000+ new titles flooding the market annually can be a full-time job. This webinar will help you identify new trends and the best new titles for your collections.

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

  • Trends in YA literature and publishing.
  • New YA fiction that constitutes “first purchases”.
  • Nonfiction for both recreational and classroom use.
  • 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 responsibility.
