The art of YA fiction has been one of growing impact over the years, covering vast topics of conversation and morphing the writing genre. It's one that may have been designed for teens, but has since become one read by many adults as the plots it crafts are ones relatable across the spectrum. YA has books that not only share problems many young people face and address formerly taboo topics head-on, but also allow adult who missed these readings to go back and be comforted that they were never alone. One topic that used to be sorely neglected was sexuality, namely queer lit.

Join this all-star panel of authors as they discuss their process of writing books that have branched out the YA genre, featuring:

David Levithan
Zack Loran Clark and Nick Eliopulos
Billy Merrell
Caleb Zane Huett
Sarah Moon
David Barclay Moore
