Webcast Recap: Fall Debut Class of 2016

Written by Deborah B. Ford

November 10, 2016

ReaderOn today’s webcast Leslie Bermel and I talked about some of the fall debut titles for readers of all ages. From a house that needs help, an at-risk boy on a polo pony and a compelling memoir of the childhood of a North Korean boy, your readers will hope that these debut stories are just the beginning of the work we will see in the future from the fall debut class of 2016. Speaking of fall, remember to add some Plus categories to get even more books in the fall—just when you need them most!

In addition to providing you with great selections, Junior Library Guild is building resources to help you use these titles. Check out our JLG Booktalks to Go Fall 2016 LiveBinder. JLG BTG titles are added to our Pinterest board and tweeted out by following Deborah B. Ford. Look for book trailers and archived webcasts on our JLG YouTube Playlists and on our website at More JLG Services/Video Resources.  Thanks to Jeanette, BTG LiveBinder Tabs with links will now be added to the book detail page. This is a direct link to the resources in the binder.

This webcast will be archived and posted on the JLG website at a later date. Your certificate of attendance can be reprinted by watching the archived video for at least ten minutes.

Join us for our next national webcast on at 3:00PM EDT December 12 when Deb will chat with our Editorial Director, Susan Marston, about the upcoming titles for spring 2017. Learn about current trends in literature. We will also talk about the JLG process. How do they get it right? How do I get that job?! This webcast is for everyone!

Here are the titles from today’s webcast.
