Join us for a discussion of what makes a book a middle grade novel vs a YA novel (or an adult literary novel with a child protagonist), what you can do in a MG novel that you can’t in a YA novel (and vice versa), and how we can get list-makers to stop calling children’s books like Matilda YA novels.
Jenn Bishop is the author of the middle-grade novels Things You Can’t Say, 14 Hollow Road, and The Distance to Home. She grew up in Massachusetts and as a college student spent one incredible summer in Wyoming. She has been obsessed with bison ever since. After working as a children’s librarian, she received her MFA in Writing for Children & Young Adults from the Vermont College of Fine Arts. Jenn currently calls Cincinnati, Ohio, home.
