Young Adult Author Wordle and the beautiful purple cart

Nora and I were thinking of a way to highlight young adult authors (and a way to use our beautiful purple book cart).  Our student readers kept asking for the same favorite names over and over again and we wanted to introduce them to a few new authors.  (John Green simply cannot write as fast as my girls want him to.)

Wordle: yawordle1

So, Nora and I scanned the shelves and our catalog and we gathered authors names and we created this Wordle to use on our website as well as over the beautiful purple cart.

If you’d like to borrow or edit and customize our list for your collection, and include your own favorite authors, feel free to get a head start by grabbing our embed code or editing our list for Wordle on this page.

Note: This is not a comprehensive author list. We will build on it.  Feel free to help by editing the list on the wiki.

  1. Great Idea. I used wordles to go with top novels from the collection as part of one of our teen read week trivia contests. Wordles have potential in every curriculum area!
