Hi Leaguers! Gennifer Albin and Lissa Price will soon be at the craziness that is Comic-Con to talk about YA novels. Signings will take place immediately after the talks, in the autograph area in the Sails Pavilion on this same upper level. Mysterious Galaxy will be handling book sales right there at the signing tables and they will have the new Starters paperback with the exclusive 25p short story, “Portrait of a Spore,” before it will be available for everyone else on July 23rd.
Lissa will also give out brand new postcards, sign with unique artwork and do a special giveaway for people in her signing line.
Gennifer will be signing at the Macmillan booth (1220) at 11 am on Sunday. The first 20 people in line will receive ARCs of ALTERED.

When Grrls Fall in Love
From The Hunger Games' Katniss to Divergent's Tris, no one knows how to give a solid ass-kicking like a YA novel heroine. But when these young ladies aren't saving the world, overthrowing powerful regimes, or slaying everything from zombies to dragons, they still find time for romance. Cassandra Clare (The Mortal Instruments), Ally Condie (Matched), Veronica Roth (Divergent), Holly Black (The Coldest Girl in Coldtown), Marissa Meyer (Scarlet), Lissa Price (Starters), and Veronica Wolff (The Watchers) discuss the delicate balance between killing and kissing, and what it takes to properly woo a YA heroine. Moderated by Sherri Smith (Orleans).

Safety Not Guaranteed
Dystopian societies, postapocalyptic scenarios, enhanced (and deadly) abilities, and mysterious government branches make the future a not-so-safe place to be. Moderator Anna Jarzab (Tandem) joins authors Marie Lu (the Legend series), Genn Albin (Crewel), Brandon Sanderson (Steelheart), Margaret Stohl (Icons), Amy Tintera (Reboot), and Michael Johnston (Frozen) as they discuss what it takes to survive in the future worlds they've created.
