Adolescent Literacy Summit: A Reading List

Since I spent so much time during the Summit in Bangkok scribbling down titles, I decided to put as much of the list together as I could. Also, all six of the presenters was published, and after hearing them speak, I need all of their books. Be warned that this list is SUBSTANTIAL.  I have no guilt about that.  If you aren't into the whole teaching literacy thing; the fiction section is at the bottom. Reading all the books!
