Young Adult Dystopias and Time Travel

StarShipSofa's Holodeck Workshops has announced its upcoming online Time Travel Lecture for July 23, 2011, which will feature Connie Willis, Ted Chiang, and yours truly. You can read all the scoop here.

In other news, I'll be up in Maryland tomorrow giving a lecture at Towson University on young adult dystopian fiction for the Institute for Humane Studies. To that end, here's my newly updated working list of young adult dystopian fiction since 1960.

If you have any recommendations or suggestions for me, I'd be most grateful! Thanks so much.

(Note: If you follow/bookmark this link, you'll always be directed to the most recent iteration of this list.)
