Less than 3% of YA books feature LGBTQA characters. This needs to change!

When: Saturday @ 1 PM

Where: Marriott 707A (YA Lit Track room)

Panelists: Cinda Williams Chima, Christopher Elliot, Nessa Warrin & Jana Lott

One of our most popular panels, every year we try to bring something new to the discussion. We’ll discuss trends, industry issues and what comes next. Always an audience participation heavy panel, we encourage those who attend to ask questions, comment, come with reading recommendations.

We have a Pinterest board to go with our panel, full of book recommendations, including new 2014 titles and titles that were recommended at the last few years of the panel. Each pin will take you to the book’s Goodreads page, and the board will be updated during/after this year’s panel, as well!
