The Latest YA Trends and Trying to Reach “Kid Zero”
On October 26, the Women’s Media Group gathered for their monthly luncheon, this time at the Upper Story restaurant inside the storied D&D Building (which features floor after floor of home interior design showrooms). WMG, founded in 1973, is comprised of women across different fields of media, from television to film to magazines to digital media to newspapers. Their aim is to be a supportive network for women in the industry. There were a lot of agents in the room, as the theme was “Panel with YA Superstars.”
Moderated by the New York Times’ children’s book editor Maria Russo, the panel included several women who wear different hats in the YA world.
