Growing Pains: Identity, Love, and High School

  • This event has passed.

High school is a hard time to be anybody. But it can be especially hard when love and friendship are at odds, when you’re still trying to figure out who you are and how to be yourself, or when you have to disguise yourself as a boy and flee for your life on the Oregon Trail (you know, the usual teenage stuff). Emily Adrian (Like It Never Happened), Kris Dinnison (You and Me and Him), Ilene Wong Gregorio (None of the Above), Stacey Lee (Under a Painted Sky), and Chris Scofield (The Shark Curtain) discuss their new YA novels with moderator Dhonielle Clayton (Tiny Pretty Things).
