4/15/17        Advice for writers: When your butt falls asleep, stand up for a while.

1:10PM -1:50PM  –  Questioning Identity, Questioning Authority

The questioning of identity and authority are two themes that run throughout YA literature, often with profound overlap.  On this panel, we’ll talk about the relation between the two, and how they play out in the authors’ new novels. I'll be joined by Crissa-Jean Chappell, John Coy, Nina LaCour, Danielle Younge-Ullman, Jeff Zentner and Ibi Zoboi, and David Levithan will moderate.
