Inspired by a True Story: A Brooklyn Book Festival panel featuring Saraciea J. Fennell

October 3, 2021 @ 11:00 am 12:00 pm EST

Everyday lives and experiences feed into the creative force behind these powerful books, from exploring the Latinx diaspora through fifteen different voices and the trials and triumphs of growing up Black and queer, to the life of a Jamaican-American teen on the cusp of adulthood, a worldwide pandemic, and a tidal wave of social justice activism. Saraciea Fennell (WFYP, January 2020) (Wild Tongues Can’t Be Tamed), George M. Johnson (All Boys Aren’t Blue), and C. J. Farley (Zero O’Clock) discuss how real-life events can inspire moving, unforgettable storytelling. Moderated by David Levithan (Take Me With You When You Go).
