"YA definitely doesn’t mean a solely young adult readership, unless we elide (or are charitable about) the "young". At YALC Meg Rosoff revealed that 55% of YA titles are bought by adults. Presumably, some of these are gifts for teenagers, but casting an eye down the average Tube carriage reveals YA titles aplenty, read with absorption by those who won’t see 15 again. The "crossover" phenomenon incenses clickbaiters with nothing better to worry about, and induces much taking up the cudgels on YA’s behalf in return."
That’s why YOU, you YA lover you, are invited to come to wordbookstores in Jersey City at 7:30 pm for YA Show and Tell on Aug 13. Bring your favorite YA book to share with the group, and make a shelf talker, Coverspy style.
Please RSVP to the event so that we know what book you’re bringing so we’ll have some on hand! We can’t wait to spy you there!
