Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Once the fastest growing genres in literature, YA books have grown beyond babysitting and first loves. Now that graphic novels are making award-winning shortlists, comics aimed at middle-grade and young adult readers are growing in popularity. BOOM! Studios senior editor Sierra Hahn and creators Hope Larson (Goldie Vance,Compass South), Raina Telgemeier (Smile, Drama), Cecil Castellucci (Shade, The Changing Girl, Moving Target: Princess Leia) and Brenden Fletcher (Gotham Academy) discuss the significance of these emerging categories of comics and what they mean for modern literacy.
