Gaffney, Loretta M. Young Adult Literature, Libraries, and Conservative Activism. Rowman & Littlefield, 2017. ISBN: 978-1-4422-6408-3

Description
This book analyzes young adult (YA) literature as a cultural phenomenon, explaining why this explosion of books written for and marketed to teen readers has important consequences for how we understand reading in America. As visible and volatile shorthand for competing views of teen reading, YA literature has become a lightning rod for a variety of aesthetic, pedagogical, and popular literature controversies.

Noted scholar Loretta Gaffney not only examines how YA literature is defended and critiqued within the context of rapid cultural and technological changes, but also highlights how struggles about teen reading matter to-and matter in-the future of librarianship and education.

Otherwise, send your full name, the name of your library, complete title information, shipping address, and a phone number to the document delivery department at library.request at state.or.us<mailto:library.request at state.or.us> or (fax) 503-588-7119. Items will be checked out to your library, not to you personally, for 4 weeks (print materials) or 2 weeks (videos).

You may be put on a hold list for several weeks.

However, if you do not have access to these services or are not currently affiliated with a library, please contact me<mailto:arlene.weible at state.or.us> to discuss alternative options for borrowing the material.
