WorldCon YA panel

The preliminary WorldCon 75 schedule is online, so I can announce my participation in the following panel! (As always, details may change.) I am very excited for this chance to talk about representation and diversity of stories in young adult literature. If you're going to be at WorldCon 75 in Helsinki in a few weeks, stop by to join the conversation!
