firstsecondbooks:

First Second authors you’ll see at San Diego Comic-Con this week!

We’re so excited to have Lucy Knisley, Jen Wang, Cecil Castellucci, Dave Roman, Paul Pope, Faith Erin Hicks, and Gene Luen Yang speaking and signing books at the show.

A woman from the audience asks: ‘Why were there so few women among the Beat writers?’ and [Gregory] Corso, suddenly utterly serious, leans forward and says: “There were women, they were there, I knew them, their families put them in institutions, they were given electric shock. In the ’50s if you were male you could be a rebel, but if you were female your families had you locked up.

I actually DREW A DRESS for once (Vera, don’t faint) — it’s a holiday frock from the 1930s, and it is being modeled by a character from my new book of short horror comics, THROUGH THE WOODS, which just came out this week!

"Ritu and I, along with Ash’s friends Annette and Sarah, had read The Fault In Our Stars this spring at Ash’s insistence. During a rough bout of chemo when she could barely eat or drink, Ash read it ravenously, immersing herself in the story of Hazel Grace Lancaster, a teenager who has incurable Stage IV cancer, a hot boyfriend, and a distinctively wise and nerdy voice combining perceptiveness and snark. Afterwards Ash bought extra copies to give away. “You have to read it!” she kept telling us.”
Earlier today, author John Green said Briallen Hopper’s essay was “the best essay about The Fault in Our Stars” he’s read. Check it out here.

Future Landscapes
Whether it’s a dystopian society, the aftermath of an apocalypse, or an unknown intergalactic landing point, the way YA novels envision the future is often complex and layered with problems and untapped possibilities. A dynamic group of authors including Emily Lloyd Jones (Illusive), Benny Zelkowicz (Foundry’s Edge), Romina Russell (Zodiac), Michael Johnston (The Heart of Dread series), Pierce Brown (Red Rising), Cam Baity (Foundry’s Edge), Charles Yu (How to Survive in a Science Fiction Universe), Benny Zelkowitcz (Foundry’s Edge), and Cecil Castellucci (Tin Star) discuss how they create their worlds of tomorrow, the architecture and outlining involved, and what we learn about our contemporary selves as a result of these future landscapes.
