Hi, all,

At our recent Summer OYAN meeting, we determined the majority of the titles that will appear on this year's Graphic Rave.  However, the manga and nonfiction titles received little to no votes during the first round.  Since we must have manga and nonfiction on the list, we'll be doing a 2nd round of voting.

Please look over this survey:  https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/7RBXPND

Read all that you can, and vote for your 5 favorite titles by September 1st!

Three things to remember:

1.     There are certain criteria that must be met with the books on our list.  By doing this second vote, we will be adding more books that will complete the list and fulfill all of our designated criteria.  As a reminder, here's a list of criteria:

a.     A wide variety of genres is desirable.  It may include fantasy, suspense, mystery, historical fiction, science fiction, romance, sports, adventure, animal stories, growing up, contemporary realism, poetry and non-fiction.  A title may fulfill more than one criterion. The following will be mandatory each year:

*         At least one non-fiction title

*         At least three titles published by a non-major publisher.

*         At least three titles published by publisher located in the Pacific Northwest.

*         At least three trade collections of comics originally released as separate issues.

*         At least three titles created in the Manga style.

*         At least three titles should be published by a major publisher.

b.    A variety of books for younger and older teens must be included.
c.     A balance between male and female protagonists is desirable.
d.    Multiple titles by the same author may be considered if each title is in a different genre.
e.     Only one title in a series will be considered per year (it does not need to be the first volume).
f.     The list should reflect multicultural diversity.

2.     There will be no "no" vote during this round.  Only vote for the books that you really enjoyed reading and think should be on the list.

3.     Remember the booklist serves 6th-12th grades, so everything on the list is appropriate for Graphic Rave.

Let me know if you have any questions!
