A Fickle Future: YA Authors Discuss Trend-spotting and Timeless Keys to Literary Success when Facing the Disconnect of the Digital Age
How can books better connect with teen readers? Must we mix both content and flair and can the next big thing be predicted – or created? Authors Selene Castrovilla, Shannon Delany, Beth Fehlbaum, Deborah Heiligman, Ellen Hopkins and Jo Knowles discuss past teen literature trends, their personal experiences, and debate what the future holds for not only the story but also the personal connection we strive to make with readers in a digital age. Presenters: Selene Castrovilla, Shannon Delany, Beth Fehlbaum, Deborah Heiligman, Ellen Hopkins and Jo Knowles
