Welcome to the Center for Children’s and Young Adult Literature where our goal is to engage and empower young readers with high-quality children’s and young adult books.
Partner With Us: Children’s Book Tour
The CCYAL wants to continue inspiring students to read by hosting a children’s book tour where three children’s authors will come and visit with students. Partner with us to reach our $2,500 goal and help ensure that all children in our community have the opportunity to learn and develop into the next generation of Vols. https://volstarter.utk.edu/s/1341/utk/volstarter/interior.aspx?sid=1341&gid=2&pgid=12526
