April 27, 2019: Teen Lit Con, Henry Sibley High School
1897 Delaware Ave, Mendota Heights, MN 55118.
YA books tackle the big issues important to teens, like intersectional feminism, poverty, privileges, immigration, sexism, racism, and politics. A diversity of characters, identities, and authors initiate and extend conversations that affect change, build community, create compassion, and confront institutionalized ideas and oppressions. Join me for a talk about injustice, empowerment, and activism in YA lit.
I will be presenting this breakout session, Social Justice and Activism in Young Adult Literature, twice. More information here.
