Summary, etc.: Getting teens to read, much less enjoy classic literary fiction is an on-going challenge for educators and librarians. However, Holly Koelling--author, YA librarian, and "booktalker extraordinaire"-offers a variety of techniques for rising to that challenge and successfully selecting, presenting, and connecting teens with great literature in the library and in school.

This is an upbeat, information-packed guide that anyone working with teen readers will refer to again and again. Learn how to attract, motivate, and inspire teens to read and appreciate great classic literature. A practical guide, packed with ideas, techniques, and booklists.
