Join Boogie Down Books at this unique intergenerational learning experience for educators and teens highlighting contemporary young adult fiction that celebrates teen activism. Meet YA authors Steven Salvatore (Can't Take That Away) and Alex Richards (Accidental, When We Were Strangers) for a panel discussion and Q&A on writing contemporary fiction about teens who are changing the world by fighting for LGBTQIA rights and gun control.
Readers ages 12 and up, educators in all subject areas, and other folx interested in supporting teen activism are welcome to attend. The first hour of this event is intended for an intergenerational audience of teens and educators. The final thirty minutes is for educators only and is required for anyone seeking a certificate of completion for CTLE hours. Participants are NOT expected to have read Can't Take That Away or Accidental in advance of the event, but feel free to bring your questions, comments, and other contributions.
