31 Days of Horror: Day 2 --An Overview of YA Horror In Libraries

As many of you know, in 2013 my job title changed from plain old RA librarian to RA/Teen Services Librarian.  Since this is a new job for me, I have turned to an expert for help in giving an overview of YA Horror.

Kelly, librarian and blogger at the wonderful YA themed Stacked, recently wrote a feature article on Teen Horror for School Library Journal entitled, "Horror in YA is a Staple, Not a Trend."

In the article, Kelly breaks down the appeal of horror to a teen audience. She includes major subgenres and lists popular examples within each.

This is a great training tool for what we librarians can expect as we encounter teen patrons searching for a scary read.

So for the most up-to-date word on the state of horror for teens at your local library, click here.
