Finding ways to talk to children and teens about tough issues, from the Holocaust to contemporary racism, can be daunting. Booklist YA editor Gillian Engberg hosts a panel discussing high-quality youth literature that can help young people expand their awareness and start discussions on challenging subjects. Attendees will hear the perspectives of a publisher, an author, a youth-literature professor, and an educational consultant, and they will also have the opportunity to connect with panelists by submitting questions and comments of their own.
