The Young Adult Literature Conference, now known as the Colorado Teen Literature Conference, was initiated in 1988 by the Jefferson County Library Foundation, and Metropolitan State College at Denver English Department faculty as an outreach to teachers and library professionals who were concerned about teen literacy. Early sponsors of the conference were Metropolitan State College at Denver and University of Colorado Denver School of Education and Human Development.
