Have always wanted to be on a YALSA book selection committee but couldn't bring yourself to dedicating a full year to reading? Participants in this preconference will evaluate dozens of YA books, explore the styles and themes of YA fiction through recent years, and make educated guesses on which titles will have staying power. The goal is to pick the one book that will have staying power and be read 45 years from now in the year 2057! Why 45 years? The Outsiders is still being widely read and it was written in 1967, 45 years ago. A list of books that will be discussed will be sent to participants in advance.
