In addition to coordinating the Lit Track, I moderated three panels at Denver Comic Con last weekend. This is the audio of the first one.
It’s a panel on YA lit, and writing YA, by YA Authors. Panelists are: Dan Wells, Amanda Strong, Angie Hodapp, Gail Wagner, and Michelle Kellogg. Moderator Eneasz Brodski. This was recorded onsite at Denver Comic Con 2015.
