Young adult literature is the boom field that many writers are attempting with varying levels of success. National Book Award finalist Tharp will discuss how to find meaning and value in a field that too often is dismissed as kid stuff. ONeal will explain why fantasy literature is so important in this field, and Brooks will explain how she created a market that didnt exist before. Tharps first novel, Falling Dark, was awarded the Milkweed National Fiction Prize. Knights of the Hill Country (Knopf Books for Young Readers), his first novel for young adults, was on the American Library Association's Best Books of 2007 list. His next YA novel, The Spectacular Now, was a finalist for the 2008 National Book Award, and has been made into a critically acclaimed film. His most recent novel is Mojo. Eilis O'Neal is the author of the young-adult fantasy novel The False Princess, a YALSA Best Fiction for Young Adults selection, a YALSA Teens Top Ten Awards nominee, an ABC New Voices selection, an ABC Best Books for Children selection, and a Georgia Teen Peach Book Awards nominee. Her short fantasy has appeared in Realms of Fantasy, Strange Horizons, Fantasy Magazine, Lady Churchill's Rosebud Wristlet, and other publications. She is the Managing Editor of Nimrod International Journal.
