The symposium will be followed by the conferring of the Walter Awards, named for the late Myers, former National Ambassador for Young People’s Literature. Award-winning librarian and educator ​Deborah D. Taylor will moderate. Participants in the symposium will include Traci Chee (“We Are Not Free”), Robin Ha (“Almost American Girl”), Daniel Nayeri (“Everything Sad Is Untrue”) and Kacen Callender (“King and the Dragonflies”).
