The accelerating pace of change—just consider the transition from page to screen—affects not only how our children read but what they read. Children’s book authors Ashley Mace Havird, Madaline Herlong, and Farrah Penn, along with children’s book editor Catherine Frank, all talk about new directions in young adult books, finding ways to empower children within their worlds. Cheryl McGoey Mathis, Regional Advisor for the Louisiana/Mississippi Chapter of the Society of Children’s Book Writers & Illustrators, moderates.

Sponsored by Kathy and Edmund Schrenk.
