Celebrate teens with Book Passage and several of the contributing authors of Dear Teen Me: Authors Write Letters To Their Teen Selves, a book of reflections and advice from nearly 70 young adult authors writing to their teen selves. Editor E. Kristin Anderson and contributors Marke Bieschke, Stacey Jay, Mike Jung, Katherine Longshore, Erika Stalder and Mariko Tamaki will talk about their letters and their experiences.
Dear Teen Me includes letters from six New York Times bestselling authors, including Lauren Oliver, Ellen Hopkins, Nancy Holder, Carrie Jones, Sara Zarr, Tom Angleberger, Robin Benway, and more, and covers a wide variety of topics including body issues, bullying, friendship, love. Some authors chose to write diary entries, some chose letters, and a few graphic novelists turned their stories into visual art, but they all offer invaluable wisdom and advice to young readers. All of the Dear Teen Me authors experienced challenging times as teens in one form or another, and now they are here to relate that it does get better!
