Teens’ Top Ten Nominations Announced!

Today is Support Teen Literature Day! The purpose of this annual event is to raise awareness among the general public that young adult literature is a vibrant, growing genre with much to offer today’s teens.

Each year on Support Teen Literature Day, YALSA launches the Teen Read Week website (www.ala.org/teenread) and announces the Teens’ Top Ten nominations (www.ala.org/teenstopten).

Earlier today, YALSA announced the nominated titles for the 2011 Teens’ Top Ten.  Between August and September, teens around the country will be able to vote for their favorite books on this list and the ten most popular will be announced during Teen Read Week, October 16-22.
