Written by Deborah B. Ford
September 21, 2017
From the JLG Webcast Series September 2017
On today’s webcast Jodi and I talked about the some of the fall forthcoming books for teen readers. From ammunition words and immigration to a harmonica, you’ll find these new releases to be worth the wait. With the addition of new categories, Spanish Middle and Realistic Fiction Middle Plus, you’ll have even more just-right titles for grades 6 to 12. Remember to add some Plus categories to your membership so that (next year) you receive even more books in the fall—just when you need them most!
In addition to providing you with great selections, Junior Library Guild is building resources to help you use these titles. Check out our new JLG Booktalks to Go Fall 2017 LiveBinder. JLG BTG titles are also added to our Pinterest board. Look for book trailers and archived webcasts on our JLG YouTube Playlists. Thanks to Kayleigh, BTG is added to the book detail page. This is a direct link to the resources in the binder.
This webcast will be archived and posted on the JLG website at a later date. Your certificate of attendance can be reprinted by watching the archived video for at least ten minutes.
