If you’re in search of drama and adventure, you won’t want to miss this! The authors whose books we explore in this session all feature kickass heroines conquering the biggest challenges the world can throw at them. Amy Rose Capetta and Cori McCarthy dream up a futuristic queer reincarnation of the Arthurian legend, and (spoiler alert) this time the Once and Future King is a girl named Ari. Fans of Westworld won’t want to miss Charlotte Nicole Davis’s bold debut, The Good Luck Girls, which finds a group of socially marginalized young women teaming up as outlaws in a reimagined Old West. In Rory Power’s debut Wilder Girls, when the planet has gone haywire and turned (literally) monstrous, female strength and solidarity is the only thing that can save the day . . . maybe. And in Brittney Morris’s debut Slay, the demon to slay is a troll--in this case an online troll, intent on taking down the hard work of a talented black girl video game developer. Educator Monique Harris will be our host for this hour celebrating powerful and resilient heroines.
