Genres & Generations: How Genre-Bending Novels Offer Teens New Ways to Explore Identity (Mackin)
Wednesday, June 14, 2023
Join YA authors Maurene Goo (Throwback) and Vanessa Montalban (A Tall Dark Trouble), and editor Tiffany Liao, as they discuss how genre-bending novels, like time traveling and rom-com tropes, allow teens to explore identity, history, and family in new ways, specifically touching on the first vs. second generation immigrant stories in their new books. Participants will be invited to join the conversation and ask the authors questions about how genre storytelling can engage young readers.
