With Megan Atwood, Brandy Colbert, Christine Heppermann, and Steve Brezenoff. In this panel, we will discuss the ways in which young adult literature tackles the landscape of the teenage female body and brings to light the inherent cultural messages that are bucked or enforced through young adult fiction and poetry. The panel will encourage a dialogue about the ways in which current and past young adult literature trends across genres explore agency, sexuality, identity, and representations of the teen female body.
