PLA Handouts

For those who missed sessions at PLA, the handouts, available on the PLA site, can be valuable sources of information. Of course, some of the handouts don’t stand alone, but the following look particularly useful for Readers Advisory information:

The documents, from Kaite Mediatore Stover (Kansas City, MO) and Barry Trott (Williamsburg, VA) include useful booklists.
