We’re coming in on the home stretch in the wait for this year’s Dragon*Con! Here in the Young Adult Lit track we’re really excited about what we have in store this year. Watch this space for more information about schedules and guests, but first, two announcements:

Fundraising. This year, Dragon*Con’s charity efforts will go towards the Georgia chapter of ALSA, something that is very close to the hearts of those of us on YA Lit staff. As such, we’ll be pitching in with fundraising in the track room with our very own House Cup, and additional donations will be taken at the Yule Ball by costumed characters. Bring your extra $$ for this worthy cause. We’ll also be having many autographed items in the charity auction this year. Stay tuned for more info!

Book Clubs. As usual we will have two book club discussions in the track room this year. One book will be Rot & Ruin by Jonathan Maberry, who will be joining us for the discussion! Our second book will be Ender’s Game by Orson Scott Card, so if you haven’t read this classic, now is a great time before the film comes out. Stay tuned to our schedule for information on when these book clubs will take place during the con.
