Join Seattle Arts & Lectures for an exciting conversation with two New York Times best-selling young adult authors Jenny Han and Nicola Yoon, moderated by Martha Brockenbrough.
Jenny Han is the New York Times bestselling author of “The Summer I Turned Pretty” series; “Shug;” the “Burn for Burn” trilogy, cowritten with Siobhan Vivian; and “To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before” and “P.S. I Still Love You.” She is also the author of the chapter book “Clara Lee and The Apple Pie Dream.” A former children’s bookseller, she earned her M.F.A. in Creative Writing at the New School. Visit her at DearJennyHan.com.
Nicola Yoon is the #1 New York Times bestselling author of the young adult novel “Everything, Everything,” which is now a major motion picture starring Amandla Stenberg and Nick Robinson, and “The Sun is Also a Star,” a National Book Award finalist, Michael L. Printz Honor Book, and Coretta Scott King New Talent Award winner. She grew up in Jamaica and Brooklyn, and lives in Los Angeles with her family.
Martha Brockenbrough (rhymes with broken toe) is the author of two books for adults and five books for young readers (with three more on the way in 2017). A faculty member at Vermont College of Fine Arts and blogger for the Society of Children’s Book Writers & Illustrators,* she’s also the founder of National Grammar Day (every March 4), and she’s written game questions for Cranium and Trivial Pursuit. The former editor of MSN.com, Brockenbrough has interviewed lots of celebrities, including the Jonas Brothers and Slash (his favorite dinosaur is the diplodocus). Her work has been published in a variety of places, including “The New York Times.” She also wrote an educational humor column for the online encyclopedia Encarta for nine years. She lives in Seattle with her family.
