Preliminary Draft Program Grid for Diana Peterfreund

This is the Preliminary Draft program schedule. Diana Peterfreund may or may not actually be on these items, but probably will. However, due to circumstances beyond our control, modifications to the program can occur throughout the convention.

Friday 3:30 pm: "Holy Shuftik!" he cried. (Ends at: 4:25 pm) Salon A
Panelists: Paolo Bacigalupi, Tom Doyle (M), Diana Peterfreund, Lawrence M. Schoen, Lawrence Watt-Evans
How does an author create a distinctive language for characters in the future or in a different world and keep it understandable to the reader? What's the right balance between creating language and making sure the reader can figure it out without a dictionary appendix to the story?
Friday 7:00 pm: Dressed for Success (Ends at: 7:55 pm) Rockville/ Potomac
Panelists: L. Jagi Lamplighter, Diana Peterfreund (M), Alan Smale, Genevieve Valentine, Lawrence Watt-Evans
How detailed should your clothing descriptions be in your story? How well thought out does fashion need to be in your secondary world? Does the clothing have anything to do with the character? Does it describe them or allow them to certain things. Do the readers care or notice?
Friday 9:00 pm: Meet the YA authors (Ends at: 9:55 pm) Suite 1209
Panelists: Danielle Ackley-McPhail, Paolo Bacigalupi, Holly Black, Annette Klause, L. Jagi Lamplighter, James Maxey, Diana Peterfreund, Jon Skovron, Janine Spendlove, Michael A. Ventrella

Saturday 4:00 pm: E.T. Phone Earth. First Contact and Alien Communication (Ends at: 4:55 pm) Bethesda
Panelists: Charles E. Gannon (M), Carolyn Ives Gilman, Diana Peterfreund, Christopher Weuve
What happens when humans meet aliens? How might we communicate with them? What barriers stand in the way? How have different SF stories, TV shows, and movies addressed this situation?
Sunday 1:00 pm: Why So Many YA Dystopias? (Ends at: 1:55 pm) Rockville/ Potomac
Panelists: Paolo Bacigalupi, Robert Greenberger, Diana Peterfreund, Jon Skovron (M)
From The Giver to the Hunger Games why are so many YA novels presenting a bleak future to our young people? And why do young adults like these books so much?
Sunday 2:00 pm: Young, Adult or Both? (Ends at: 2:55 pm) Rockville/ Potomac
Panelists: Paolo Bacigalupi, Holly Black (M), Annette Klause, Will McIntosh, Diana Peterfreund, Jon Skovron
How does a YA differ from a children's book or an adult book? How is the pacing, characterization, and language different or the same? Are there things you can do in one and not the other? Are these distinctions needed? And what about series like Harry Potter in which the children grow up?
