Strong Female Characters in YA Lit
Discussion with Laura Ruby
Description: Join award winning Young Adult author Laura Ruby for a frank discussion about strong female characters and feminist themes in YA lit. Ms. Ruby is the author of "Good Girls," "Bad Apple" and "Play Me." All of her books for teens include themes of female sexuality and the societal consequences of being a strong girl in today's fragile climate. Her books for teens are notable for their "heartbreaking" characters (School Library Journal), "pertinent, provocative, and dramatic" storylines (Kirkus), and their "frank, realistic portrayal of teen life," (VOYA).
