The Loft Literary Center says
How can picture book authors chronicle and make sense of our difficult past and acknowledge the uncertain present? A panel of picture book writers will talk about how they treat tough subjects for very young audiences. Panel moderated by Andrew Karre and featuring Carol Hinz, Vaunda Nelson, and John Coy.

Andrew Karre is executive editor at Dutton Children’s Books, an imprint of Penguin Random House, a position he assumed in 2015. He acquires young adult and middle grade fiction and nonfiction. Karre helped launch the YA imprint Flux in 2006, and he has been editorial director at Lerner Publishing Group for the last six years, overseeing Carolrhoda Books and founding the YA imprint Carolrhoda Lab. He has published first novels by such acclaimed authors as Maggie Stiefvater, A.S. King, Carrie Jones, Blythe Woolston, and Carrie Mesrobian. He was Vaunda Micheaux Nelson’s editor for the award winning No Crystal Stair.

Radical Nonfiction Storytelling is free and open to the public. This event (along with the immediately preceding Books: Compass in the Storm with Vaunda Micheaux Nelson) kicks off the Children's and Young Adult Literature Conference (May 1–3, 2015).
