NCompass Live: Nancy Drew & Friends;Or, the Case of the Neglected Books:The History (& Importance) of Youth Series Books – Online

With the proliferation of series books for children and young adults today it might come as a surprise to many librarians that for many years series books occupied a dark corner of librarianship–the books were deemed unacceptable forms of reading material and were often ignored for purchase despite their popularity with young readers. In this webinar, you will be introduced to the history of series books as a format and then learn specifically why these books are not only important to the history of youth literature but to American history and pop culture as well. Speaker: Lindsey Tomsu, Teen Coordinator, La Vista Public Library.
