NPR: The Dangers, Values Of Dark Teen Lit

The Dangers, Values Of Dark Teen Lit

As a newbie to much of the YA vampire literature, I have many curiosities and questions about the “literary value” of much of the vampire/wolf/zombie lit that is so prevalent and extremely popular in our library. I recently stumbled upon a conversation involving “Dark Teen Lit” on NPR that discusses this genre of YA literature.

If you are curious about the plethora of YA books that involve themes of violence and vampires, and you will find this conversation interesting. It features the opinions of some expert YA librarians :)
