31 Flavors of Fantasy Devoured by Kids and Teens - Thursday 17:00 -17:45, 401C (CC)

Fantasy has become a catch all category for all of the subgenres featuring "fantastic" elements from action adventure to urban and epic fantasy, romantic fantasy, and more! How many sub genres are out there and what elements help to define them? Does the reader's age affect
the growth or definition of a subgenre? Join our panel of young adult and middle grade authors for a lively discussion that gives you a little taste of each subgenre as they share some of their favorite works across the fantastic spectrum that help to define the various subgenres.
James Van Pelt (M), Alma Alexander, Cassandra Rose Clarke, Esther
Jones, Brandon Sanderson
