Stark Raving OYAN: Books Talks for the 2021 Book Rave and 2020 Graphic Rave


Oregon Young Adult Network members deliver snappy, exciting booktalks that highlight some of the best recent young adult fiction, non-fiction, and graphic novels, as chosen by Oregon librarians working with teens. This session highlights why you might want to buy and suggests these books to teens and adults who read YA and also read them yourself! Ravers top things off by revealing a super-secret list of “Ravers Choice” recommendations of ultra-current and not-yet-published titles worth watching for. Links to PDFs of the lists are provided so they can be passed on to patrons. Sponsored by OYAN (Oregon Young Adult Network).
