Smashing Stereotypes in YA

In celebration of Suzanne Park’s new book Sunny Song Will Never Be Famous, we will host Park in conversation with Aminah Mae Safi, This is All Your Fault, as they discuss how they are smashing stereotypes in YA.
They’ll talk about creating strong, distinct characters and the conscious choices they make as authors along the way.

About this Event

Made in L.A. Vol. 3: Art of Transformation is a love letter to one of the greatest cities in the world, one that invites, or forces, its inhabitants to transform with it.

We launched our second anthology at Skylight Books to a crowd of devoted readers. This year, we’re coming back online to showcase a set of stories that investigate the art of transformation, something every person and every place in LA undergoes more often than not.

We’ll hear from contributing authors about how LA locales inspired their stories and what it’s like to write fiction that illuminates our beautiful, flawed, transforming home.

An online event hosted by BookSwell in collaboration with Skylight Books.
