  • This event has passed.

YA authors Alicia Tuckerman and Mark Smith explore issues of sacrifice and morality in response to Mark’s latest release, Land of FencesThey will discuss crafting young protagonists with the fierce tenacity of Kas, Finn and their friends, and the idea that in fiction (and life), teens are increasingly responsible for not only saving themselves but also the worlds they live in. Is dystopian fiction merely entertainment, or is it training?
