Where: Beaverton City Library, 12375 SW 5th Street, Beaverton, OR 97005
Cost: Completely and utterly free!
What: An Oregon Young Adult Network sponsored workshop featuring a presentation from former Printz Award Committee member Traci Glass, followed by group discussion and voting on the best books of the year. (Of course there will be snacks! We're librarians, not tyrants.)

And now, the books! We sent out this list a couple of weeks ago to give you a chance to dive in, but here it is again (and attached). Please read as much as you can and come prepared to defend your favorites. 'Tis a friendly discussion, but it can get...passionate. Throw down your gauntlets, if you must. Just throw them gently...It's a library, people! Have a little respect.
