Humor! It grabs boys' attention, keeps them turning pages and makes them clamor for “more books like that!” But wait a second - boys aren’t the only ones demanding funny books. And men certainly aren’t the only ones writing them. So why do these misperceptions persist? With editor Sharyn November as moderator, five middle grade authors will discuss the serious business of busting stereotypes and the pleasures and pitfalls of being female and writing funny.
