SLJTeen Live,  Our Voice, Our Time - Free Virtual Event, Wednesday, August 5th


Often thought of as quiet places, libraries are, in fact, hotbeds of passionate communication, dialogue, and activity. Young adult fiction has always been about finding and raising your voice. Like Greta Thunberg, Emma González, and other young activists, real teenagers around the world are making themselves heard, at home and abroad.

This year, many teens will vote for the first time, and even the youngest have powerful perspectives worth sharing. Meanwhile, #OwnVoices creators increasingly share stories that have long been silenced. As adults, it’s equally important that we listen to and amplify young voices, inside and outside our communities. The conference’s author panels and library programming sessions will help you support and engage teens during this complex moment and beyond.

Explore the virtual exhibit hall, download materials, enter contests, hear directly from publishers about their newest books, and live chat with staff, authors, and peers!

Registration includes access to the SLJTeen Live! on-demand archives for up to three months.

All the best,
