In March of 2018, Laurel Springs was privileged to be joined by a celebrated member of the education community, Dr. Bob Seney, who provided in-depth analysis on the importance of literature and made recommendations of the latest and greatest Young Adult novels.
An accomplished educator for over 40 years, Dr. Seney’s enthusiasm for literature and storytelling earned him the unofficial title of “The Book Guy,” and his What’s New in Y.A. Literature presentation has been featured regularly at the National Association for Gifted Children Annual Conference since 1985. Dr. Seney is Professor Emeritus from Mississippi University for Women, where he also served as the Coordinator of Graduate Programs in Education, the major instructor in the Master of Gifted Studies program, and the Director of the Mississippi.
