Tough Topics in Middle Grade and YA


Before we get to the sessions, our parent organization, the Cybils Awards, is running a TBR Reading Challenge starting today! Go check it out!

This is the last of our would-have-been sessions – a session that Pam has been running at every KidLitCon for several years now. Please feel free to share your favorite relevant books in the comments so we can take this conversation online!

What are the issues that kids and teens face today and what are the books that represent these issues in literature? Turning to books in a time of crisis helps the reader process their situation. Join Hawanya Urquhart of Project Lit 313 and Pam Margolis, the Unconventional Librarian, for a discussion on tough topics in YA and Middle Grade Lit and leave with a list of crowdsourced book titles.
