This Read alert blog is produced by members of the Centre for Youth Literature (CYL). We post news and opinion, and contribute to conversations on a wide range of topics to keep literacy professionals up to date with the latest information, current thinking and issues in youth literature.

CYL is a national resource and network, with international connections in the field. We promote reading for pleasure for all young people and champion youth literature across the broader cultural spectrum.

We’ve been blogging here at Read alert for the past six years. On 25 May 2011 we updated the blog’s design and URL. You can find an archive of our old posts and your old comments from May 2005 to the launch of the updated blog in May 2011 at Pandora, Australia’s web archive.
