It’s followed by a panel of YA novelists, Forever Complicated: Familial Love & the Question of Belonging in YA, moderated by Natalia Sylvester, author of the forthcoming YA novel RUNNING (May 5, 2020).
It closes with a panel of writers, Borderless: Conversations on Art, Action, and Justice, moderated by Chaitali Sen, author of THE PATHLESS SKY.
