Do you have that nagging feeling that hidden out there somewhere is a book or two that just must get into the hands of your young readers?  Well, who better than to help you mine those hidden gems than Becky Colbeck and Kari Tanaka from the University of Lethbridge Bookstore!  With over 30 years of trade book experience between them, Becky and Kari not only know what's hot, but what should be, in the 6-12 market.  Their book talks will include new releases and books for every reading ability, including a few that haven't even hit store shelves yet!  This session will be jam packed with information but, don't worry, you will leave with a comprehensive list of all of the titles that were book talked and then some.  Plus, it will be fun!  Like speed dating, but with books!
