The Politics of YA

Young adult fiction is more popular — and more controversial — than ever. Once there were taboos and book bans; now there’s YA Twitter. How do authors cope with the fine line between being too SJW (Social Justice Warrior) or not SJW enough, especially in the already-opinionated comics world? Matt Holm (Swing It, Sunny), Mariko Tamaki (Lumberjanes), Cecil Castelluci (Soupy Leaves Home) and Molly Ostertag (The Witch Boy) talk about the balancing act and challenging the definition of all-ages. Moderated by Conor McCreery.
