They’re Here – 2013 YALSA Selected List Reproducibles (Spring 2013)

Spring 2013 YALS Best of the Best coverThe spring 2013 issue of YALS is all about YALSA’s selected lists and awards. There are articles about the Odyssey Award and the Excellence in Nonfiction for Young Adults Award. There is information about all of YALSA’s annual selected lists. But, one thing is missing from the print version of the journal, that’s a full set of selected list reproducibles. But, no worries, they are right here on the YALS site, easily accessible for you to download and reproduce for teens and others in your community. There’s even a file that includes all of the lists in one. So, go for it. Reproduce away. (By the way, all files are in PDF.)

Of course you’ll want to read all of the articles in the spring issue and visit this site every week for content that connects to what’s in the print version of the publication.
