This groundbreaking series is designed to ensure that public and school librarians have the tools they need to develop and adapt their collections, services, and programs to meet the diverse -- and ever-changing -- needs of young adults.

Young adults may be the toughest audience on Earth. Can librarians successfully use booktalks with teenagers who have grown up with the Internet, digital TV, and CD-Walkmans? The answer is yes! Noted booktalker Jennifer Bromann shows you how in this new manual with step-by-step guidance, plus a collection of 50 booktalks that work. Practical chapters discuss what teens want; how booktalkers can choose the right books (and which ones to avoid); booktalking basics; writing booktalks (including hints for preparing a booktalk when you don't have time to read all the books). Sample booktalks cover 10 genres: science fiction, realistic fiction, fantasy, historical fiction, nonfiction, short books, horror, mystery, humor, and popular books of temporary -- but immediate -- interest.
