CCBC – NetCCBC-Net is a listserv encouraging awareness and discussion of ideas and issues critical to literature for children and young adults. CCBC-Net members explore a wide range of topics in contemporary literature for youth, including multicultural literature, translated books, outstanding, and award-winning books, equity themes and topics, the book arts and book publishing, and more.
Every month on CCBC-Net we focus on a new topic or issue. Past discussions include:
Young Adult Literature on the Edge
- Images of Families in Books for Children
and Young Adults
- Creative Nonfiction in Literature for the Young
- Books for Newly Independent
- Evaluating Children's and Young Adult Books by and about American
Current and upcoming topics.
At the start of each month on CCBC-Net, we welcome general announcements about children's and young adult literature-related events, news, and activities. Please note that announcements and other off-topic posts should be limited to this time, and not be made during the the subject-specific discussions.
The CCBC-Net Community includes librarians, teachers, university educators and students, authors, artists, editors, publishers, and other adults with an interest in literature for the young.
