Invite for my seminar: Sexual Content

Filed under: Uncategorized — jexter1 @ 9:46 am

Hello All,

I would like to extend an invite to join my seminar on sexual content for Wed., May 7th. I will be discussing the importance of the topic, the fear many schools and parents/guardians have against sexual content in YA literature, and the detriment in putting bounds on the content offered to YA readers. Some books that I will be discussing are FOREVER by Judy Blume, INEXCUSABLE by Chris Lynch, BLOOD and CHOCOLATE by Annette Curtis Klause, and THINGS CHANGE by Patrick Jones.

I will be distributing my folders on Thursday of this week, so please let me know who is participating!

Thanks, Jessica



  1. Wish I could be there! Would be interested in results-

  2. Jess,
    I’m in! It relates very closely to my topic, and I’ve read INEXCUSABLE.
