Safina Center Creative Affiliate Luanne Rice participates in panel at NYC Teen Author Festival, “Voicing the Pain Inside.” She’ll discuss her novels “The Secret Language of Sisters” and the forthcoming “The Beautiful Lost.”
Pain, especially springing from a mental health issue, is a very hard and very important thing for authors to convey in YA. These authors have all taken different approaches to draw the pain of their characters or subjects with honesty and effect. In this conversation, we’ll talk about how this is done, and what it’s like for an author to delve to these depths.
Location: 42nd Street NY Public Library, Bartos Forum
