What's New in YA Literature

In this outstanding workshop, Shauna Yusko will share the best, NEW books for young adults, all of which have just recently been published. Shauna will go beyond familiarizing you with the best of the newly published titles to share practical strategies for using these outstanding books in your classroom or library.

This fast-paced day will be filled with great, new books, innovative and creative ideas, enthusiasm, exciting curriculum connections, and news about authors that are all too good for young adults to miss.

All participants will leave with extensive annotated bibliographies in a comprehensive resource handbook full of outstanding ideas that you can immediately put to use to motivate and inspire your young adult readers.
