Banned Books Week is here, and TeenLIVE presents New York Times bestselling author Ellen Hopkins at Grand Central Library this afternoon to discuss “the darker side of decisions, the pressure of perfection, and the search for identity in the world of fiction.” The books above are Hopkins’ contribution to young adult literature. Her best-known (and most banned) book Crank is “loosely based on my older daughter’s story of addiction to crystal meth,” according to Hopkins. Perfect is her latest, just-published novel.
Tonight’s event is free, for ages 13 to 18 years old, and at the Grand Central Library (on East 46th Street between Lexington and Third Avenue). Please join us!
All KidsLIVE and TeenLIVE programs are sponsored by the Katerina and Andreas C. Dracopoulos Family Endowment for Young Audiences.
