A new issue of the YA Hotline has just been published!  Issue 112: Feminism and FantasyThis issue of the YA Hotline explores Feminism and Strong Female Characters in fantasy literature. These topics are important for libraries and young adult workers to know about because they affect how girls see themselves in the literature they are reading. This issue includes several book lists and annotated bibliographies, programming ideas, and an analysis of related television programs and movies.  The authors (Katie Blythe, Lidia Elsdon, Elphege Bernard Wesson, Marlee Silliker, and Julie Timm) hope that this issue of YA Hotline provides professional readers with ideas for materials, programs, and activities related to this popular YA genre.


All issues of the YA Hotline are created by students in INFO 6250, Services and Resources for Young Adults, and are freely available at https://ojs.library.dal.ca/YAHS/index

The YA Hotline is a bi-annual newsletter published by the School of Information Management at Dalhousie University.The newsletter contains a large amount of information and resources for both young adults and young adult librarians including book reviews, resource lists, bibliographies, feature articles, interviews and more.
