Here’s a clip from the official press release…
The Young Adult Library Services Association (YALSA), the fastest growing division of the American Library Association (ALA), has announced its 2007 recommended list of Great Graphic Novels for Teens. The list, to be prepared annually, was released for the first time during the ALA Midwinter Meeting in Seattle, Washington, held January 19-23, 2007.
In beautiful downtown Seattle the 11-member committee worked hard to narrow its 141 official nominations down to the final list of 67 excellent adult and young adult graphic novel titles. The books, recommended for ages 12-18, meet the criteria of both good quality literature and reading appeal for teens.
Among the selections in fiction was
Rubio, Kevin, Lucas Marangon, and others. Star Wars: Tag and Bink Were Here. 2006. Dark Horse Comics, paper, $14.95. (978-1-59307-641-2).
Congrats Lucas and Kev!
