ala annual 2013 chicagoThousands of librarians, library workers, and vendors will converge on Chicago in just one week for ALA’s 2013 Annual Meeting. The long weekend will be full of educational sessions, committee meetings, author appearances, and awards ceremonies.

If you’re going to Annual, try to work these YA lit-related events into your schedule (all times are in Central Time):

Friday, June 28th

Saturday, June 29th

Sunday, June 30th

Monday, July 1st

Additionally, while YALSA’s award committee meetings are closed, the selected list committee meetings are open, so if you want to see just how the titles on lists like Best Fiction for Young Adults, Quick Picks for Reluctant Young Adult Readers, Popular Paperbacks for Young Adults, Fabulous Films for Young Adults, Amazing Audiobooks for Young Adults, or Great Graphic Novels for Teens are chosen, sit in on a selected list meeting! (You can find these sessions in the Annual Scheduler.)

For those of you who won’t be in Chicago next week, even if you can’t be part of the action, you can follow along here on The Hub: we’ll be liveblogging the BFYA teen feedback session and the YMAs jointly with the YALSAblog, and we’ll have summaries and wrap-up posts of these events once Annual is over.

You can keep up with other conference news on the YALSAblog and on Twitter with the hashtags #yalsa, #ala2013, #bfya, and #bestofyalit.
