Books for the Teen Age, 1993.
New York Public Library, NY.
This document continues a 64-year tradition by listing books for adolescents, arranged by subjects that teenagers have asked about in library visits. The browsing list contains approximately 1,250 books, about 350 of which are new listings, marked for the reader's convenience. Approximately 100 sections contain the entries, grouped into the following broader sections: (1) The Creative Spirit; (2) Science; (3) Here/Now; (4) One World; and (5) Action and Adventure. For each of these sections, a few titles have been annotated in some depth, but most entries provide only a brief note. New in 1993 are sections on "being gay" and the holocaust. New titles on Vietnam and the Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome (AIDS) are of particular interest. All of the books have been read and selected by librarians in young adult services. (SLD)
