I'M IN ST. LOUIS AT THE YALSA SYMPOSIUM



I'm currently in St. Louis at the YALSA (Young Adult Library Services Association) Symposium. I'm meeting amazing librarians and conducting a panel with four fabulous New Mexico authors at 1:30 on Saturday! See the details below:

 

YALSA Author Panel

St. Louis, Missouri - November 3, 2012

 

A Matter of Facts and Fiction:

Giving Teens a Research Edge through YA Author Panels


Program Description: Five New Mexico authors will present a pilot program that brings teens and authors together to explore research strategies for writing fiction and nonfiction in a digital world.  The authors will discuss collaboration among libraries, bookstores, educators, and local authors to create dynamic interactive school events designed to excite teens about becoming research detectives, and inspire teachers to link YA fiction with curriculum goals and objectives.
