Last month, Young Adult writers and fans of the genre gathered at Loganberry Books for a free talk and reading with celebrated YA authors Cinda Williams Chima and Mindy McGinnis. Among the topics discussed were why Cinda and Mindy enjoy writing for younger adults (their answer: they're the most passionate readers!), the ways in which YA tales grapple with "adult" themes like sexual abuse and mental health, and how to craft a balanced tale that engages new and old readers alike. Check out Cinda's work here and click here to explore Mindy's work.
