This past month, I was lucky enough to share in VOYA Magazine some lists of high interest nonfiction sports books that would appeal to the young adult audience. VOYA Magazine serves librarians and professionals who serve young adult readers. They do a fantastic job of gathering programming and resource ideas for librarians to engage the teenage population in reading.
The first part of my series published in August involves ball sports. Much like the high profile nature of these activities, they are probably the most popular sports books that teens check out. The second part to appear in the December issue will be on combat/fighting sports, and the final installment in early 2017 will be on the silent sports like running and swimming. Any opportunity to bring good sports titles into the literature playing field is golden, so I am excited about this! I have included the article below, so take a read and discover some new titles for your library or personal collection!
