Forum Recap: The Paranormal in Children's Literature

On the evening of Friday the 13th members of the ChildLit GSA gathered at the Living Room Cafe on El Cajon Blvd to discuss various elements of the paranormal and supernatural in children's literature.

Discussion topics included love for the works of Neil Gaiman, the trend of angel and demon romance in YA lit, and a general embarrassing fear of lightweight horror such as the Goosebumps series of the 90's. Newcomer Matt Griffing revealed himself as the only true fan of horror and otherwise scary paranormal happenings in children's lit, and won the Pub(lication) Quiz after a riveting lightning round tie-breaker with President of the ChildLit GSA, Alya. Congrats, Matt!

If you missed this forum but would like to attend the next, don't fret! The ChildLit GSA will be sure to hold another forum soon, possibly on comics and graphic novels and their intersections (or not?) with children's lit. Check back for updates!
