Middle grade books, for 8 to 12 year olds, can be sometimes unsung and misunderstood, stuck as they are between picture books for young children and YA books for teenagers. So what draws writers to middle grade? Join panel of authors Jeanne Birdsall, Cammie McGovern, Catherine Newman, Liz Rosenberg, and Lisa Yee as they discuss the joys, choices, and challenges involved in writing for this age group.
