What A Lineup!

BookCon 2020 is virtual and if you’re a fan of superheroes here’s an excellent panel to watch tomorrow, May 30, 2020, 11:00 AM – 11:40 AM: The New Age Of Heroes. It’ll be moderated by Gabby Rivera (Juliet Takes a Breath), with panelists Zoraida C√≥rdova (Labyrinth Lost), Preeti Chhibber (Spider-Man: Far From Home: Peter and Ned’s Ultimate Travel Journal), Nic Stone (Dear Martin), and Nicky Drayden (The Prey of Gods). It’s going to be so good–seriously, if you haven’t read their books get on that!
