Kirsten: Hello and welcome! As advertised, the Organization for Transformative Works is running a series of chats during the month of September in celebration of our 10th anniversary. Today’s chat focuses on the Young Adult genre.
I’m your moderator, Kirsten Korona, and I’m a staffer with the OTW’s Communications committee. We have some prepared questions for guests and then we’ll be opening the floor to audience questions.
Today our guests are author Tessa Gratton and Young Adult Services librarian and YALSA board member, Kate McNair. You can check out their bios by following the links on our announcement post.
