Melissa Gorzelanczyk, Green Bay, Liza Wiemer, Milwaukee
Wisconsin authors Brittany Cavallaro (A Study in Charlotte), Melissa Gorzelanczyk (Arrows) and Liza Wiemer (Hello?) will share how YA novels provide an outlet to explore topics such as diversity, family dynamics, relationships, sexuality, coping with loss and grief, both through fantasy and contemporary fiction. The authors will give librarians specific tools to help readers discover new books based on key words and interests.
