Young Adult Literature in Action: A Librarian's Guide (Library and Information Science Text) (Paperback)
Young Adult Literature in Action is an ideal resource for teaching young adult literature courses and specifically meets the needs of LIS faculty and students. Taking a genre approach, it offers an easy-to-use guide for establishing selection criteria and finding the best titles for specific usage in the library and classroom. In this new edition, each chapter includes thoroughly updated information on collaborative activities, featured books, special topics and programs, selected awards and celebrations, historical connections, recommended resources, issues for discussion, author comments, and assignment suggestions.
In this thoroughly revised and updated edition, coverage of graphic novels--especially manga titles within this genre--has been significantly expanded, reflecting the growing number of titles and increasing interest in them. Additionally, recent titles have been added that reflect popular trends and interests in young adult literature, such as science fiction and fantasy books that blur the lines between genres--novels about dystopias, vampires, and zombies, for instance.
