A third installment in this continuing series on reaching undiscovered readers, this panel will review the use of hi/lo books and introduce the use of audio books in libraries, school libraries, classrooms and other places readers might be "discovered". We will discuss such questions as "is listening reading?", "Can audio books improve literacy?" and "Who might benefit from using audio books?". We'll also discuss audio book awards. The panel will introduce some recent audio books for children and teens and discuss issues in their production and marketing. The panel will include an author/narrator signing.
