Listen Up for Teen Read Week

Written by Francisca Goldsmith on Thursday, October 11, 2018


We're half way through the annual Teen Read Week celebration developed and sponsored by the Young Adult Library Services Association. Because we at SYNC are all about listening literacy, we have some resources to help you share a love of listening to books with teens this week.


If you have yet to discover Mary Burkey's Audiobook Lexicon , you are in for a big treat! If you don't yet understand the appeal factors related specifically to listening to read, this guidance will put you well on that road. And if you already love to listen, it's an excellent resource for talking with others about what works and what doesn't, and why, in audiobook performance. Every library media advisor and secondary teacher needs to download a copy for reference.

For resources related to YALSA's Teen Read Week, you probably already have the annual site. However, if it's eluded you, here is that link for all things YALSA, teens, and reading for the fun of it.

Looking for a refreshed list of brand new teen audiobooks all year long? AudioFile Magazine keeps up its New Audiobook Reviews access point, adding about 200 new reviews a month. There's a subsection there just for Young Adult Audiobooks  with an ever-changing collection of brand new reviews.

Happy listening! Make this Teen Read Week one your teen readers discover the delights of listening.
