Listen to audio-recorded readings of former Consultants in Poetry Elizabeth Bishop, Gwendolyn Brooks and Robert Frost; Nobel Laureates Mario Vargas Llosa and Czeslaw Milosz, and renowned writers such as Ray Bradbury, Margaret Atwood, and Kurt Vonnegut read from their work at the Library of Congress.

Archive of Recorded Poetry and Literature

The Archive of Recorded Poetry and Literature at the Library of Congress dates back to 1943, when Allen Tate was Consultant in Poetry. It contains nearly two thousand recordings—of poets and prose writers participating in literary events at the Library’s Capitol Hill campus as well as sessions at the Library’s Recording Laboratory. Most of these recordings are captured on magnetic tape reels, and only accessible at the Library itself. In digitizing the archive and presenting it online, the Library hopes to greatly broaden its use and value.

Awards for Children's and YA Literature By State

Readers'-Choice & Other-Criteria Awards, by state CYALR is honored to host this list with permission. The links to sites about children's literature awards by states were originally compiled by Melissa Depper of Colorado's Blue Spruce Young Adult Book Award Committee in January 2000 for PUBYAC, a discussion list for Children's and Young Adult Librarians in Public Libraries. It was not intended to be comprehensive.

Melissa updated the list in May 2005. Cyn NOTES: Cynthia Leitich Smith is an author, not an awards coordinator for any state program.

Top Tuesday: Top Ten Most Anticipated Releases for the Rest of 2015

But I do love sharing what new books I’m waiting for and there are quite a few that are published this summer. I love waiting for new releases and as I have three Chapters gift cards to spend, this will be an excellent opportunity to look at books that I would like to pre-order. 1. The Invasion of the Tearling by Ericka Johansen: Featured as one of my Waiting for Wednesday posts, this sequel is one of my most anticipated summer reads! I enjoyed Queen of the Tearling and after hearing that Emma Watson will be starring the role of our heroine in the upcoming movie, I am even more excited to read this series. 2. 3. 4. YA Authors Cafe. Coming of Age Online: Social Media in YA Literature.

Teens today are coming of age in an environment saturated with social media, so it’s no surprise it’s featured prominently in the plots of many young adult novels.

Coming of Age Online: Social Media in YA Literature

When I started noticing a trend of books that explore the impact that social media has on the lives of teens, I decided it would be interesting to compile a list showcasing the various ways that teens’ use of Facebook, Twitter, blogging, and other social media are depicted in young adult literature. Lauren Myracle’s Internet Girls series is inventive in structure and form, but the story of girls chatting online and communicating in a virtual space is also groundbreaking in the way it examines the social lives of teens. TTYL was a 2005 Quick Pick for Reluctant Readers, and the fourth installment in the series, YOLO, is due out this year. Two other recent publications also explore internet culture. Even as Facebook’s popularity among teens is on the decline, it’s still a part of most teen’s daily lives.

Best Young Adult Books For Grown-Ups

YA has only gotten more popular in the seven years since The Hunger Games came out in 2008. Blockbuster adaptations of stand-alone novels and series like The Fault in Our Stars, The Maze Runner, and Divergent have made YA familiar even to those who haven't picked up a book written for teens since they were a teen themselves. But just because the box office is dominated by dystopian landscapes and John Green doesn't mean that's all YA has to offer.
