Today at Noon Eastern (11 Central), I am going to be (attempting to) host a Google Hangout with the fabulous authors of Faultline (Christa Desir), Where the Stars Still Shine (Trish Doller) and the Morris nominated Sex & Violence (Carrie Mesrobian) to discuss sexual violence in young adult literature.
This will be the first time I have attempted this, so it could be a hot mess. But I am dedicating 2014 to raising awareness about sexual violence in the lives of teens and the role that young adult literature can play in increasing awareness, promoting healing, and trying to put an end to these horrific crimes.
The link for the Hangout on Air is: https://plus.google.com/events/cku5495814ho83tve44kd1d25is
And I hope to post it tomorrow for those who need an archive.
