Diversity—we demand diverse books!

Readers will find these authors and the tales they spin as empowering and fascinating as ever. Join authors Soman Chainani (School for Good and Evil series), Cece Bell (El Deafo), Mariko Tamaki (This One Summer), Scott Sigler (Alive), Judd Winick (Hilo: The Boy Who Crashed to Earth), and Cindy Pon (Serpentine) as they discuss diversity in science fiction and fantasy with David Mariotte of Mysterious Galaxy!
