Facing Your Fears 

New York Times bestselling author Chris Grabenstein (Mr. Lemoncello and the Titanium Ticket) joins two debut standouts, Jessica Kim (Stand Up, Yumi Chung!) and Janae Marks (From the Desk of Zoe Washington), to discuss how their characters face their fears—whether that be a death-defying scavenger hunt, telling jokes on stage, or finding the truth about your dad—and discover the courage to pursue their dreams when life-changing obstacles stand in the way. Moderated by award-winning author Kate Messner (Chirp).
