Whew, October has been one busy month! The first weekend of October found me at New York Comic Con (NYCC), a four-day celebration of all things comics, graphic novels, books and pop culture. At NYCC, I was able to see middle-grade authors Andy Mientus (THE BACKSTAGERS AND THE GHOST LIGHT), Soman Chainani (The School for Good and Evil series), Ethan Aldridge (ESTRANGED), Christopher Eliopolous (MONSTER MAYHEM) and Adam Gidwitz (The Unicorn Rescue Society series). Although each author had a ton to say about his or her books and series, one thing that had everyone excited was diverse representation, especially in graphic novels.
