Kick off a new year and a new decade by finding fresh YA!
In January 2020, we invite you to read a recent debut (late 2019 debut works!) or something new and different from a favorite author.
#YearofYA is a different kind of twitter chat: we pick a theme, you pick the books! Need helping finding something fresh to try in this new year? Check out some of the resources and links below to get you started.
Be prepared to reflect back on YA in the 2010’s, and what you hope to see in 2020’s YA, during our chat on Monday Jan. 27. 8pm EST / 5pm PST
You don’t have to wait until our chat to tweet about what you read! Use #YearofYA anytime to share out good reads, inspiring links, or toss out a question.
Throughout 2020, Tavia & Mollee will be freshening up #YearofYA too! Be on the lookout for new material from us on the blog and on Twitter.
Be sure to invite any and all readers to join #YearofYA in 2020!
