Post Presentation Post: Mid/High JLG Booktalks September

Written by Deborah B. Ford

SpeakToday Leslie and I did our Mid/High webcast for the new selections of Fall 2015. In 30 minutes (well, kind of), we managed to booktalk 30 books for teens. Below is the list of our selections and their corresponding categories.

Check out the NEW JLG BTG LiveBinder Fall 2015 for resources for these and other fall titles. Remember to check for the JLG Booktalks to Go Tab on the book detail pages which will be posted as they are created. You can subscribe to SLJ Extra Helping and read the BTG column firsthand. Titles from JLG BTG are added to our Pinterest board and tweeted out by following Deborah B. Ford. Look for book trailers on our JLG YouTube Playlist. The webcast will be archived and posted at a later date.
