    Meeting Room 1, Marriott Waterside, Second Floor

    Four Young Adult and Middle Grade authors will discuss the role of humor in their works and how it can help with creating relatable characters, illustrating character growth, heightening the stakes, dealing with tough subjects, and attracting reluctant readers. The authors will discuss different ways in which their works use humor and the things that make them, and readers, laugh.
