Maverick librarian Margaret Edwards not only threw open the gates of her fair garden of literary treasures, but she spent a life's work luring in the beasts. The Centennial Edition of this young adult services masterpiece authored by the 20th century's most revolutionary librarian presents an accessible and relevant work for the YA librarian of the 21st century. The original 1969 edition of The Fair Garden and the Swarm of Beasts featured groundbreaking essays connecting reading, the library, and young people. This Centennial Edition reproduces the original with new insights by YA services expert Betty Carter, who puts these philosophies into 21st century perspective. It also includes an annotated list of all the "Alex" award-winning and nominated books and the Margaret A. Edwards award-winning authors. Celebrating the 100th anniversary of Edwards' birth, this reissue commemorates the longevity and influence of her commitment to connecting teenagers as individuals with reading and the library. It will inspire yet another generation and provide a foundation for leadership by today's new young adult librarians. No young adult librarian's shelf is complete without this flagship YA services classic and now the updated, must-have Centennial Edition.
