As book banning has been growing as an issue throughout the United States, conversations about what is appropriate for young readers are starting to take center stage. This panel, featuring authors Tochi Onyebuchi, Alys Arden, Kami Garcia, LL McKinney, and DJ Kirkland, will cover their perspectives on whether or not they feel like they need to hold back or avoid certain topics in literature for Young Adults.

Popverse is filming this and many other panels at ECCC this year, and making them one of two ways - by becoming a Popverse member at the 'Fan' level (or higher), or by buying a ECCC digital ticket. The ECCC digital ticket gives you access to live video panels streamed at ECCC from the Main Stage, VOD panels from three other stages, and access to all the great content from Popverse for 30 days. The Popverse membership does that for the entire year, and would include live video panels from the upcoming New York Comic Con, MCM London Comic Con in October, and (yes) next year's Emerald City Comic Con and C2E2.
