Tween Readers' Advisory and Programming at #PLA2014

Renata Sancken and I before presenting at PLA 2014!
Yesterday, at the PLA Conference in Indianapolis, my teen librarian Renata Sancken and I presented a session on tween readers' advisory and programming. It was a lot to cram into one session, but we had a great crowd with lots of great questions and it was all amazing and fun!

If you were there or if you were not there, you can access our handouts on the PLA Conference website: Our session is titled Betwixt and Be-Tween and was presented on Thursday, March 13 at 4:15 (that should help you find it).

I live in massive fear that people will not actually go and download the handouts, which you SHOULD because our behind-the-scenes (i.e. home with tiny babies!) presenters, Kate Conklin and Sarah Bean Thompson (of GreenBeanTeenQueen), put together a MASSIVE readalikes handout with readalikes for tons of the series and books that are super popular with tweens right now. Diary of a Wimpy Kid, Warriors, 39 Clues, I Survived... it's all there.

Thanks to everyone who came out! And please feel free to contact us (contact info..... on the handouts!!) any time. We'd love to hear from you!
