Dreams Deferred

From uncovering injustice, making and breaking relationships, to keeping the secrets of the past buried, these four authors have written characters who aspire and sometimes fail to realize their hopes and dreams. Join Marie Myung-Ok Lee (The Evening Hero), Tobias Carroll (Ex-Members), and Chelsea Bieker (Heartbroke) for this panel about persevering in the face of adversity and danger, from environmental disaster to pandemic isolation to punk rock alienation, moderated by Electric Literature Editor-in-Chief Denne Michele Norris.
