Can you believe it’s almost con time already? Here in Young Adult Lit we’re really excited about what we have in store this year! Our final schedule and guest list is forthcoming, but in the meantime, here are some announcements.

Yule Ball! Same Potter place, same Potter time. If you look forward to the Yule Ball every year, then you’re in luck because we’re still on! We’ll be in our usual spot in the Sheraton starting at 8:30. So wear your finery or best YA lit costume, and come dance the night away. If you’d like to participate in our annual costume contest, judging will be at 5:30 on Sunday in the track room – there are more details here.

Book Club! Our book club selection this year will be Fair Coin by E.C. Myers. You might remember him as a track guest from past years, and he’ll be joining us this year as well for a round table discussion of this fantastic book, which was the winner of the 2012 Andre Norton Award for Outstanding Young Adult Science Fiction/Fantasy Book. Get started reading now!

House Cup Competition! Last year you all helped the YA Lit track raise an amazing $1,604.53 for ALS research. Dragon*Con is supporting three worthy charities this year, and so can you if you want to participate! Last year Ravenclaw won the House Cup. Who should win this year? You can find out more information here.
