Youth Lit Salon
On Saturday, May 21, 2016, we held our Inaugural Youth Lit Salon, where librarians, writers, teachers, & booksellers came together to discuss hot topics in youth literature, librarianship and writing.
Our first theme was "Fighting Words." Authors and librarians acted as facilitators for informal conversations on derogatory or controversial language in youth literature, censorship and self-censorship, and balancing intellectual freedom and personal values.
The Children's Literature Council of Southern California is a professional organization of librarians, teachers, authors, and illustrators creating a community that honors and promotes children's and young adult literature.
