Since we started our Instagram page (@calibrary), we’ve been scouring the Interwebz for authors to follow, which isn’t always easy; with so many “unofficial” fan pages out there, it’s difficult to find the ones that are “official”.
That’s why I was delighted to discover YA Highway, a blog featuring “writers from different corners of the globe, united by our affinity for travel, costume parties, and writing and reading young adult fiction.” One of their posts from last year was just what I was looking for: an accurate list of YA Authors on Instagram. It was a big help!
I customized the list to include authors whose books we have in the CA Library collection — click on the author’s name to see which titles we have.
