PEN Out Loud: Writing the Future
Monday October 22: 7:00PM – 8:00PM
This October, PEN America and the Strand Book Store present an unmissable panel of young adult authors who are inspiring our next generation of literary activists.
Moderated by Ibi Zoboi, with Dhonielle Clayton, author of The Belles and COO of We Need Diverse Books, Joseph Bruchac, one of the most widely published Native American authors writing for children and young adults today, Emily Pan, New York Times bestselling author of The Astonishing Color of After, and Kheryn Callender, activist and author of This Is Kind of an Epic Love Story and others.
Together these writers will discuss how young adult authors are working to promote a diversity of voices, causes, and stories, inspiring teen and adult readers to become more socially engaged through the work they read and the authors they follow.
