Early in December, the Young Adult Library Services Association (YALSA), a division of the American Library Association (ALA), named five books as finalists for the 2014 YALSA Award for Excellence in Nonfiction for Young Adults, which honors the best nonfiction books written for young adults between Nov. 1, 2012 and Oct. 31, 2013. We at SLJ are very excited to invite you to join us for a live webcast as we talk with the finalists; hear a bit about the research, writing, and design of these marvelous books; and learn about what goes into making the best nonfiction titles accessible and engaging to today’s teens.

YALSA will name the 2014 award winner at the Youth Media Awards on Jan. 27, in Philadelphia during the American Library Association’s Midwinter Meeting.
