Hello OYANers,

This is your final reminder that any lingering nominations for our Graphic Rave 2019 should be sent to me by Saturday, August 17.  I'll send out the voting doc next week, and you'll be able to read our nominees and vote over the next month.

Keep reading, and don't forget to send me (tracig at multcolib.org<mailto:tracig at multcolib.org>) your faves by this Saturday!

Details & a PDF of current nominations included below - and, let me know if you have questions.


Hello OYANers!

Guess what?  It's time for the 2019 Graphic Rave nominations!  For those of you who are new to OYAN or have just forgotten - the Graphic Rave is OYAN's annual list of the best graphic novels, comics, and manga for teens.  The process will be almost, if not totally, identical to the process we all go through to come up with our Book Rave list.

Only books published from May 1, 2018 to April 30, 2019 can be included on the 2019 Graphic Rave.

Whenever possible, the list shall consist of the following:

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.  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 published by a major publisher.
  *   A variety of books for younger and older teens must be included.
  *   A balance between male and female protagonists is desirable.
  *   Only one book per author, per genre will be included.
  *   Only one title in a series will be considered per year (it does not need to be the first volume).
  *   The list will reflect multicultural diversity.

When nominating a book, please include the author, title, genre, month and year of publication and publisher.   Send all nominations to tracig at multcolib.org<mailto:tracig at multcolib.org>. The last day to nominate a title is August 17.

Here are some official dates to remember:

August 17: Nominations close.

August 18: Voting opens.

September 18: Voting closes.

Again, please send all nominations to tracig at multcolib.org<mailto:tracig at multcolib.org>.  Also, feel free to let me know if you have any questions!
