Speaker: Karin Perry

When you hear Sci Fi do you automatically think of Klingons, light sabers, and robots? Does sitting down for an all-day Star Trek marathon make you cringe? Well, never fear – just because you don’t like Science Fiction doesn’t mean you can’t recommend Science Fiction. This presentation will provide middle school, junior high, and high school librarians assistance with readers’ advisory and collection development in the area of Science Fiction literature.
Learning Outcomes:
• List several popular YA Science Fiction titles and authors.
• Locate blogs and websites to assist with book selection.
• Recommend Science Fiction books to tweens and teens who don’t like Sci Fi.
