The Edge of Y.A. Fiction
David Levithan and E.R. Frank in Conversation with Kristen Kemp
Tonight’s guests have been the vanguard of young adult fiction for decades, because they are experimental and uncompromising artists. David Levithan, the author of more than 20 young adult novels, is an innovator of form and writer known for his strong gay male characters in books that include Boy Meets Boy and Hold Me Closer: The Tiny Cooper Story!. His most recent novel is Another Day. E.R. Frank is the author of five novels, most recently Dime. Dime is a tale of child-trafficking set in in Newark, NJ, which booklist calls “a masterfully told, unforgettable tale of what hope looks like in desperate circumstances.” They discuss their processes and opinions about fiction for young people with seasoned YA author and Parents magazine book columnist Kristen Kemp. Due to the subject matter of Dime, this event is recommended for readers 14 and up.
