Dr. Joni Richards Bodart

Dr. Joni Richards Bodart has published 21 books on young adult literature, including two series on booktalking published by H W Wilson, which were the first titles published on the subject, and are considered to be the standard for the field.

Her other research interests include disconnected youth, adolescent culture, the need for information on developmental psychology in coursework preparing students to become children’s and young adult librarians, and how changes in social networking software have impacted how YA authors communicate with their readers and the influence that has had on their writing.

Joni is also the winner of the 2010 Scholastic Library Publishing Award, formerly the Grolier Award, given annually to a librarian whose “extraordinary contributions to promoting access to books and encouraging a love of reading for lifelong learning exemplifies outstanding achievement in the profession.”
