FLYOVER presents a panel discussion and reading in partnership with the National Book Foundation, featuring National Book Award for Young People’s Literature finalists Erika L. Sanchez (I Am Not Your Perfect Mexican Daughter), and Elana K. Arnold (What Girls Are Made Of).
Speaking for Ourselves: Elana K. Arnold and Erika L. Sánchez
Perhaps at no other moment in history have readers had access to such a wide range of literary voices that center the lives and stories of women and girls. How can we continue to shed shallow portrayals of young women and the tropes that have defined so many stories for younger readers? Join National Book Awards Finalists Elana K. Arnold (What Girls Are Made Of) and Erika L. Sánchez (I Am Not Your Perfect Mexican Daughter) for a discussion about the vital importance of sharing stories that are complex and empathetic, and that shed light on the realities and nuanced experiences of young women.
