Young Adult Literature, Libraries, and Conservative Activism by Loretta M. Gaffney is now available!
From the Preface to the book: [This book] "examines how librarians, teachers, cultural critics, and conservative library activists portray young adult (YA) literature and its readers. It analyzes public and professional discussions of YA in order to find points of agreement and contention and to bring a librarian's-eye-view to cultural criticism of teen media. It considers YA literature not simply as a body of literature written and published for a teen audience but also as a cultural signifier standing in for different constituencies' views of teenage reading."
