Do you read YA? What have you been reading?

I really, really want to know - because now is the time to make nominations for the 2021 Book Rave.

Book Rave is an annual list produced by the members of the Oregon Young Adult Network and announced at the Oregon Library Association's annual conference in April. Books nominated should be written and marketed for readers of middle and high school age (generally 6th-12th grade) and be published between November 1, 2019 and October 31, 2020.

Aaaaand ... that's it. If you read a YA book and you liked it and it was published between those dates - nominate it! Nominate many! Or a few. Or one.

Here is the form. It doesn't take long to add some books that you think are worthy of being promoted to Oregon teens:

The goal is to create a list with a variety of genres and voices that includes books for both younger and older teen readers. We have a lively interest the inclusion of Oregon authors and/or Oregon settings. This list does not include graphic novels. OYAN also organizes a separate Graphic Rave list published in the fall.

Nominations will be collected until December 11, 2020. OYAN members will then be invited to vote on the nominated books through mid-January 2020, narrowing the list to approximately 20 OYAN Book Rave selections. The list is further discussed at the winter meeting of the Oregon Young Adult Network, usually held in January.

Please nominate early and often!!
