When we wonder what the effects of science fiction and fantasy are —
When we wonder whether fiction has an impact on young people —
When we ponder and speculate over the role YA has in our children’s lives —
— I want to point out that the teenagers and twenty-somethings, the thirty-year-olds, protesting and rioting and shouting for justice in the streets, these people grew up on Harry Potter, on the MCU, on Buffy, on The Hunger Games.
Loving Buffy, Harry, Katniss, and Steve doesn’t make you a revolutionary. But it makes a war against injustice look possible.
