Keeping it Real: Sci-Fi, Fantasy and Fandom in Fiction for Young Readers

In this conversation, award-winning authors Aya de Leon and Torrey Maldonado will discuss the role of magic, fantasy, science fiction and comic book fandom in their young adult, middle grade and children’s chapter books. How do supernatural elements and storylines bring stories to life, whether it’s sci-fi or more realistic fiction? In particular, how do these elements help us explore issues of race, gender, and other political issues for young readers?
