THURSDAY, MAY 28th

Library Journal’s Pre-BEA Day of Dialog

Jordan Summers / Crimson & Red

2:45-4:00pm “Urban Fantasy Panel” McGraw-Hill Auditorium, 1221 Sixth Avenue

Monster Lit/Urban Fantasy: Demon hunters, vampires, werewolves, shape shifters, fairies, witches, zombies, all fit into this growing collection area, which crosses from teen to adult as well as from classic to pop lit (a Jane Austen-zombie mashup). What’s the attraction? Why now? Who are the authors to watch?
