Brooklyn Public Library / Central Library

Panel discussion: “Caught in BeTWEEN: Meaningful Middle Grade.” Tween readers: they’re not earnest little kids anymore, but they’re not quite prickly teenagers either. How do authors craft characters and narratives that speak to this unique developmental moment in a child’s life? What are the “big topics” being explored within the pages of middle grade literature, and how are authors expanding our preconceived notions of the genre? In this panel, veteran and debut authors will open up about writing for those readers caught in the middle. Panel includes: David Barclay Moore, The Stars Beneath Our Feet (Knopf/Random House); Tony Abbott, The Summer of Owen Todd; Veera Hiranandani, Night Diary; and George O’Connor, Hermes. Additional panelists TBD. Moderator: Kiera Parrott, SLJ and LJ Reviews Director.
