Saturday 4:00:00 PM SFF At Your Fingertips

The online world has fundamentally changed how we find, discuss, and pass on the books that mean something to us. How has unfettered access to many authors changed the discussion around their work? What about the ease of finding like minded communities that only reinforce an individual point of view? Jon Skovron, Andrew Zimmerman, Amy Sundberg

Saturday 5:00:00 PM Autograph Session 2

Saturday 7:00:00 PM Emotive and Ebullient: The Young Adult Narrator

Huge films like Hunger Games and Divergent have created renewed interest in beloved Young Adult fiction. However, the intense emotive first person narratives driving many Young Adult novels don't shine through on the big screen. What is lost in translation and how might this impact readers coming into Young Adult for the first time? Kelley Armstrong, Courtney Allison Moulton, Amy Sundberg (M), V.E. Schwab, Jon Skovron

Sunday 11:00:00 AM The Youthful Form: What Is Young Adult?

From the epic fantasy farmboy to the urban fantasy snarky detective, tropes are everywhere. As a result, they can, and often are, used to criticize a work. What are the common tropes in Young Adult fiction? Are they required for the form? If not, how do we work against these tropes and reinvent them? Aimee Carter, Susan Dennard, Alaya Dawn Johnson, Jon Skovron, Sunil Patel (M)
