Love young-adult literature? Here's an event for you

The Charlotte chapter of the Women's National Book Association hosts a panel on "The Rise of the Young Adult Novel," 6:30 p.m. Tuesday, Feb. 15, at the Quail Hollow Estates Clubhouse, 7301 Quail Meadow Lane.

Panelists include moderator Snow Wildsmith, writer and former teen librarian; Lois Moss, a book blogger and photographer; and Tracey Adams, children's and young-adult literary agent with Adams Literary.

Also on hand will be two bestselling young-adult authors from North Carolina: Beth Revis, author of "Across the Universe," and Charlotte's Carrie Ryan, author of the trilogy, "The Forest of Hands and Teeth," "The Dead Tossed Waves" and, coming in March, "The Dark and Hollow Places."
