9/7 Hammer Museum / Odd Duck

I’ll be reading ODD DUCK over at the Hammer Museum on 9/7 as part of their Made in LA / Make in LA Family Day event!  

I’ll be reading along with Eugene Yelchin & Mary Kuryla, Erin Hickey, Julia Ingalls, Antoinette Portis, Summer Block, Ben Loory as part of the Hot Dish Literary Series.

There will be lots of fun things to do!  There will be a Chad and Theodora coloring sheet.

Future Landscapes
Whether it’s a dystopian society, the aftermath of an apocalypse, or an unknown intergalactic landing point, the way YA novels envision the future is often complex and layered with problems and untapped possibilities. A dynamic group of authors including Emily Lloyd Jones (Illusive), Benny Zelkowicz (Foundry’s Edge), Romina Russell (Zodiac), Michael Johnston (The Heart of Dread series), Pierce Brown (Red Rising), Cam Baity (Foundry’s Edge), Charles Yu (How to Survive in a Science Fiction Universe), Benny Zelkowitcz (Foundry’s Edge), and Cecil Castellucci (Tin Star) discuss how they create their worlds of tomorrow, the architecture and outlining involved, and what we learn about our contemporary selves as a result of these future landscapes.
