Breaking All the Rules

Rules are made to be broken, especially when teens are charting their own destinies. Whether they’re looking for love in 1910s Chicago, experimenting with drag, or navigating family secrets from juvenile detention, sometimes the only way to survive societal expectations is to rewrite the rules completely. Bestselling author Krystal Marquis (The Davenports), debut novelist Dan Clay (Becoming a Queen), and publishing veteran Jennifer Baker (Forgive Me Not) discuss journeys of healing and hope in this panel moderated by Aamna Qureshi (When a Brown Girl Flees).
