Book-related panels at Comic-Con @ Home 2020!

For those of us with an incurable thirst for all the details about every book ever, I wanted to let you all know that the San Diego Comic-Con 2020, which has gone completely virtual (and free!), has a few authors and publishers you might recognize holding virtual panels. It's worth noting that some of these panels seem to be pre-recorded, and some (though not all) will be available for viewing after-the-fact. Here are some of the ones worth noting:
  • Several notable graphic novelists, including Jerry Craft and Faith Erin Hicks, previously discussed new kids' graphic novels! This panel has already happened, but it is available for viewing after-the-fact. Learn about it here, or watch it here.
  • The former benevolent overlord of MMGM, Shannon Messenger, had a panel dedicated entirely to her Keeper of the Lost Cities series in which she talked with author J.C. Cervantes. This panel has already happened, but it is also available for viewing after-the-fact. Learn about it here, or watch it here.
  • Graphic novelists Raina Telgemeier (!!!) and Robin Ha have a panel on Friday from 11am to noon, Pacific time, in which they will be talking, drawing, and answering fan questions (so you might want to watch live). There's even a promo to get a bookplate signed by Telgemeier! Learn about the panel here, or watch it here.
  • A vaguely described panel in which "Personal, political, fictional, and factual creators tackle important topics that affect everybody" will include, besides several others who are not children' writers, Victoria Jamieson and Omar Mohamed, authors of the wonderful When Stars Are Scattered. This panel is on Saturday from noon to 1pm, Pacific time. Learn about it here, or watch it here.
  • Finally, representatives from Simon & Schuster Children's Publishing will be giving a sneak peek at the company's upcoming books during a panel on Saturday from 2pm to 3pm, Pacific time. There is also a giveaway of several ARCs! Learn about the panel here, or watch it here.
  • I might have missed some panels, so if you want to search the Comic-Con schedule for more stuff, click here.
I hope some of these panels look appealing to you! I know that I always seem to stumble upon interesting events like these the day before they are happening, so I wanted to give you all at least a little bit of warning if you happen to be interested. If you end up "going" to the panels, have fun!
