Old Role, New Soul

Whether as knights, high school basketball jocks, Victorian Era heroes, or best friends making a “beauty” ritual into a deeper experience, these authors’ young protagonists are bringing fresh perspectives to classic roles. Nadia Shammas (Squire), Robyn Smith (Wash Day Diaries), Ivy Noelle Weir (Anne of West Philly) and Laura Gao (Messy Roots) discuss the creative process of fine-tuning a well-known archetype to center on your own identity. Moderated by Leigh Hurwitz,  Brooklyn Public Library.
