Registration is open now at www.ala.org/yalitsymposium for YALSA’s 2012 Young Adult Literature Symposium in St. Louis, Nov. 2-4, at the Hyatt Regency St. Louis at The Arch.
Panels will cover everything from trendspotting to the changing face of young adult audience, to the new ways teens are connecting with and interacting with literature.
YALSA is offering two stipends of up to $1,000 each to fund travel to the symposium. One will be awarded to a library staffer who works directly with young adults (with at least one year experience), and the other will go to a student enrolled in an ALA-accredited MLS program as of November 2, 2012, with a focus on young adult services.
Deadline: June 15 to email@example.com.
Applicants must hold a personal membership to YALSA (student membership is valid for the student stipend).
