The Middle Grade Revival (Loc. Embassy RM)

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

With all the attention getting thrown at young adult books and their subsequent franchises, and then the evolution of the raging new adult category, middle grade mania waned a bit in the past decade. Lately, however, we are seeing a resurgence of the genre. Self- and indie-published middle grade is on the rise, and new TV series’ and films are in the works in the near future.

Those precious and fleeting pre-teen to early teen age years where big adventures, big mistakes and first victories over fears and insecurities connects with the kid in all of us, but especially with readers 8-12, who are testing their independence and beginning to discover who they are or want to be.

This panel will discuss what’s happening right now, what the future of MG looks like, and how it often sets the stage for all the genres that come after.

**Appropriate for fans and pub industry.
