Powerhouse YA author Angie Thomas joins us to discuss themes from her two New York Times bestselling novels about powerful young women who use their voices to effect change. Angie will be in conversation with BPL YA librarian Adeeba Afshan Rana.

The Hate you Give (HarperCollins, 2017), inspired by tragic real-life events, was made into a critically acclaimed movie in 2018. On the Come Up (HarperCollins, 2019) draws upon Angie’s own experiences as a teen rapper and the power of hip hop.

Copies of her books will be available from Stories Bookshop + Storytelling Lab for purchase, and Angie will be signing after the event.
