RTW: Dream Author Panel

Road Trip Wednesday is a ‘Blog Carnival,’ where YA Highway's contributors post a weekly writing- or reading-related question that begs to be answered. In the comments, you can hop from destination to destination and get everybody's unique take on the topic.

This Week: 
What authors would be on your dream author panel?

Conference season is here once more! I have never been to BEA or ALA (or any conference, for that matter) and, sadly, that doesn't look like it's going to change this year. Someday!

If I had to pick my dream author panel, I think it would have to include John Green (Looking for Alaska, The Fault in Our Stars, Paper Towns), Veronica Roth (Diverent, Insurgent), Lisa McMann (Wake, Fade, Gone, Cryer's Cross), Elizabeth Wein (Code Name Verity, which if you haven't read it you really should. Seriously), and David Levithan (Boy Meets Boy, Every Day).

I just think they would be a fascinating group to listen to talk about anything having to do with young adult literature. They're all fantastic writers and I would love to hear them.

Markus Zusak (The Book Thief, The Messenger) would be amazing to have on the panel as well. Especially when it comes to talking about YA historical fiction.

I agree. This would be a fascinating panel of writers. Veronica Roth and John Green are just great storytellers, I'd love to meet them. :)
