About the Panel Authors:

Terri Libenson's middle school experience involved trying on friendships like clothes in a dressing room (often the dorkier ones fit). Eventually, she found close friends for life--who love her exactly for her own dorky self. Terri is the Reuben Award-winning cartoonist of the recently retired syndicated comic strip The Pajama Diaries. She is also the New York Times bestselling author of the Emmie & Friends series. Terri lives with her husband, two daughters, and a spirited puppy in Cleveland, Ohio. You can find her online at www.terrilibenson.com.

Nadia Shammas is an Arab-American comic writer born and raised in Brooklyn, New York. She is the co-creator and author of SQUIRE, a Middle Eastern YA fantasy set to be releasedin Fall 2021. Her other notable projects include being the creator and curator of CORPUS: A Comic Anthology of Bodily Ailments, an anthology based around illness, disability, and healthcare experiences. When not writing, she's thinking about her great loves: girls with swords, her cat Lilith, and cold brew coffee.
