Teen Read Week Twitter Chat Highlights

 

trwFINAL Teen Read Week Twitter Chat Highlights

Teen Read Week (TRW) kicked off with a lively Twitter chat among supporters of teen literacy and leisure reading on October 15, 2-3pm ET. An initiative spearheaded by the American Library Association’s (ALA) Young Adult Library Services Association (YALSA) in 1998, TRW encourages adolescents to be lifelong readers and library users.

School Library Journal; Zondervan’s young adult imprint, Blink; Goodreads; Merit Press; Soho Teen; and the American Association of School Librarians (AASL) participated in the hour-long virtual conversation, highlighting ways librarians can help celebrate teen reading.

A mix of librarians, authors, editors, and other supporters of teen literacy also joined the chat. Below are some of the tweets that resonated with SLJ editors. For the full thread, check out #TRW13 on Twitter.
