Mirrors & Maps: Using Ya Literature To Navigate Risks In Adolescent Life, Lesley Roessing
National Youth-At-Risk Conference Savannah

Novels provide maps to navigate risks and issues experienced by teens. The presenter, a former middle-grades teacher and author of No More “Us” and “Them,” teaches Bibliotherapy and will share Young Adult novels/memoirs and strategies that focus discussions on risks contemporary adolescents face.
