2012 Texas Maverick List Announced


With my travels to the Miami Book Fair, as well as the Thanksgiving holiday, I was completely remiss in sharing the news that the 2012 Texax Maverick Graphic Novels Reading List was announced. (This was announced almost two weeks ago, so my apologies for being so late with the news.) As librarian Tuan Nguyen, part of the Maverick Graphic Novel Committee, explains: "The Texas Maverick Graphic Novels Reading List (TMGNRL) is a recommended reading list developed by public and school librarians from the Young Adult Round Table (YART). The purpose of the list is to encourage students in grades 6-12 to explore a variety of current books. The TMGNRL list is intended for recreational reading, not to support a specific curriculum. Due to the diversity of this age range, Texas librarians should purchase titles on this list according to their individual collection policies."
