Good Press for YA Lit
We here at Pop have complained about the "all YA books suck" newspaper stories.
So it's only fair we say, Way to Go Seattle! Cecelia Goodnow of The Seattle Post-Intelligencer had not one, not two, not three, but FOUR articles about teens and books, and not a nary "YA books suck" article amongst them.
For your reading pleasure:
Teens buying books at fastest rate in decades (interviews actual authorities in the field)
If you're looking for tasty teen titles to satisfy, check out this menu (which highlights YALSA's Best Books list)
Is young-adult fare too mature for some of its readers? (respectfully points out that YA may be ages 12 to 18, but not all books are for all readers)
and Top Trends in Teen Literature
And just when I thought it couldn't get any better --
Entertainment Weekly highlights the YALSA Alex Awards in an online column, Kids Corner.
What great coverage!
