Taking a Turn: YA Characters Dealing with Bad and Unexpected Choices

March 22, 2013

Program Locations:

Stephen A. Schwarzman Building, Margaret Liebman Berger Forum
For ages 13 to 18 years

The 2013 NYC Teen Author Festival presents "Taking a Turn: YA Characters Dealing with Bad and Unexpected Choices." In each of these authors’ novels, the main character’s life takes an unexpected twist.  Sometimes this is because of a bad choice.  Sometimes this is because of a secret revealed.  And sometimes it doesn’t feel like a choice at all, but rather a reaction.  We’ll talk about following these characters as they make these choices – both good and bad. Will include brief readings illuminating these choices.
