The Blog of Gene Luen Yang - 2008 Young Adult Literature Symposium
2008 Young Adult Literature Symposium 


Just got back from YALSA's very first Young Adult Literature Symposium ever. It was a pretty wonderful experience. I got to hang out with such YA lit luminaries as Barry Lyga, Kaza Kingsley, and Margaret Peterson Haddix. I even got to share the stage with Terry Trueman, an incredibly charming mixture of hyperactivity and genius, both in person and in letter.

Then, of course, there were the librarians. I think I'm going to start praying that one of my kids become a librarian the way old school Catholic parents used to pray that one of their kids become a nun or priest. I always come away from a room full of librarians feeling inspired.

Some folks at the conference asked about the Powerpoint I used during my pre-conference keynote. You can download it here for the next seven days.
