CLA Young Adult Book Award Committee Needs Saskatchewan Representative

Hmmm…it doesn't seem to require that you be a librarian, only that you are willing to join CLA for the duration of the term on the jury (which is a 5 year commitment with a requirement that you read ~100 books per year.  I've done nearly that for a book awards jury once but doing it for five years straight? image)

committee is seeking someone who is:

read in young adult literature
