SCROLL DOWN TO READ THE POST
A Change of Scene
We’ve enjoyed a wonderful five year (almost) run here on AB4T, reviewing books and predicting award winners. Today is our last post.
Adult Books 4 Teens is changing format and delivery method, but not going away. When next you encounter AB4T it will be an online column–and its very own section of the print journal!
Mark Flowers will continue as editor. I am stepping down.
It has been a true pleasure to bring this discussion of adult books to an online audience, to write about books and reading and appeal on a weekly basis. I hope that many books have found their way into the hands of teens as a result.
I want to publicly thank all of the excellent reviewers who have contributed their work to this blog. Thank you to all of our publisher marketing colleagues for understanding this project, and for supporting it so generously by responding to our requests for the books we hoped to review. Thank you to everyone at SLJ, especially Brian Kenney, Luann Toth, Trev Jones, Kathy Ishizuka, Kiera Parrott, and Shelley Diaz, for their support and enthusiasm. And thank you for continuing to champion adult books with teen appeal in the future.
And I want to thank YOU for reading. Thank you!
