What do these powerhouse YA authors have in common? They all are writing groundbreaking, highly acclaimed (or highly anticipated) work that pulls from the trials and tribulations of real life to create mind-bending fantasy. Tomi Adeyemi AB '15 (Children of Blood and Bone) tackles systemic racism in the Legacy of Orïsha trilogy. Marie Lu (Legend trilogy) contemplates economic disparity and climate change in her series and the upcoming Rebel Margaret Owen (The Merciful Crow) promotes social justice in her debut. And Hafsah Faizal (We Hunt the Flame) dispels myths about Arabian culture in her first novel. Moderated by Mary Pearson (The Remnant Chronicles, Dance of Thieves), author of the upcoming Vow of Thieves .
