Diversity in YA Tour

Cindy Pon (author of Silver Phoenix, named one of the Top Ten Fantasy and Science Fiction Books for Youth by the American Library Association's Booklist, and one of 2009′s best Fantasy, Science Fiction and Horror by VOYA) and Malinda Lo (author of author of Ash, a finalist for the William C. Morris YA Debut Award and named one of the Kirkus Best Young Adult Novels of 2009) want to show that Young Adult fiction is a genre of many faces, both in terms of writers and characters- it is this with this mindset that they embark on the Diversity in YA tour, which comes to Chicago on Tuesday, May 10. In addition to Pon and Lo, the presentation will feature local authors Claudia Guadalupe Martinez and Nnedi Okorafor.

The event will take place at Barbara's Books (1218 S. Halsted St), from 5:30-6:45pm.
