Going to Worldcon? Here’s where I’ll be, and when:
16 Aug 2019, Friday 13:00 – 13:50, Wicklow Room-3 (CCD)
Remember the “Greatest swordsfight” from the “The Princess Bride”? Or Darth Vader’s duel with Obi-Wan? How about Aragon versus the Nazgûl? There can be only one! Bob Anderson was an Olympic competitor turned swordmaster/fight choreographer who knew how to tell a story with weapons. Our panelists will analyze how he did it.

Gender and sexuality in YA
17 Aug 2019, Saturday 10:00 – 10:50, ECOCEM Room (CCD)
Young adulthood is a formative time in many ways, but especially when it comes to gender and sexuality. Both topics have been increasing in interest and importance in YA books. How do our books reflect explorations of identity? Why is it important that they do so? Has this changed over time? And how can we approach these topics respectfully – and with an eye on intersectionality?
Sam Bradbury (M), Diana M. Pho, Victoria “V.E.” Schwab, Rei Rosenquist, Rachel Hartman
