Author Scott Westerfeld started off the day with a fantastic keynote, focused on steampunk and illustrated novels for young readers. See the complete featured author list.
I had the honor of moderating the "Supernatural Suspense" panel, which featured Heather Brewer, Tera Lynn Childs, Andrea Cremer, Sophie Jordan, and Jackson Pearce.
