Pop-up: Zan Romanoff

Sat, Nov 11, 2017 from 12:30 pm - 12:45 pm PST
1219 SW Park Ave Portland, OR 97205

Zan Romanoff reads in the Portland Art Museum galleries from her YA book, Grace and the Fever.

Romanoff is paired with The Violoncellist by Gustave Courbet; found in the European Art, floor 2, gallery 200. Please reference the Portland Art Museum Map to find this location.

Rainbow Rowell’s Fangirl meets Jenny Han’s The Summer I Turned Pretty in this contemporary YA about what it means to be a fan—and what it means to be a friend—when your whole world is in flux.
In middle school, everyone was a Fever Dream fan. Now, a few weeks after her high school graduation, Grace Thomas sometimes feels like the only one who never moved on. She can’t imagine what she’d do without the community of online fans that share her obsession. Or what her IRL friends would say if they ever found out about it.
Then, one summer night, the unthinkable happens: Grace meets her idol, Jes. What starts out as an elusive glimpse of Fever Dream’s world turns into an unlikely romance, and leads her to confront dark, complex truths about herself and the realities of stardom.
From the author of A Song to Take the World Apart, Grace and the Fever is a heart-clutching reminder of what it’s like to fall in love—whether it’s with a boy or a boy band—and how difficult it is to figure out who you are after you’ve fallen out of love again.

Zan Romanoff

Zan Romanoff is the author of three young adult novels, most recently Look, a deceptively glamorous and thoroughly feminist queer coming-of-age novel about falling in love and taking ownership of your self and your image in the age of social media. Romanoff’s non-fiction has been featured in The Awl, Buzzfeed, Eater, The Los Angeles Times, and The Washington Post, among other publications.
