On August 10, 2016, thousands of professionals came together online for SLJ‘s 5th annual SLJTeen Live! (formerly SummerTeen). Attendees heard from many of the biggest YA authors about their upcoming books and listened in on discussions about important issues in teen programming and career advancement.

It’s not to late to view archive webcasts and explore the exhibit hall to download sponsor materials.
