What Teens Think: BFYA Teen Feedback Session Liveblog

Want to hear what actual teens actually think about YA fiction? This afternoon we’ll be liveblogging the Best Fiction for Young Adults Teen Feedback session at ALA’s Midwinter Meeting, where dozens of local teens give their opinions on the titles that the committee is considering for inclusion on the 2013 BFYA list. Watch a live video feed of the session and read our liveblog below. Tweet your own thoughts and reactions with the #bfya hashtag!

I have been a librarian working with youth since 1998, beginning at the Alachua County Library District, and later at Palm Harbor Library and Nashville Public Library. Possibly because of the edgy nature of teen literature, or possibly because my maturation process crashed at the age of fifteen years-old, I love YA books. And I enjoy working with YAs as well, although I'm just as happy doing Toddler Time. By some good fortune, I have served on a number of YALSA selection committees (Outstanding Books for the College Bound, Popular Paperbacks, Alex Award, Odyssey Award, Nonfiction Award, Morris Award, and Printz) as well as a smattering of process committees. Currently I am serving on the YALSA Board. .I also review books for VOYA, School Library Journal's Adult4Teen Blog, BookPage, and Booklist.
