Sydney Writers’ Festival 2018 presents
FROM THE SIDELINES

YA offers a chance for authors to create a broader picture of a ‘typical’ teenager. Is it enough to include diverse voices if their only role is to prop up the hero? Why does the quiet kid always need to be saved by a cool romantic interest?

Youth Curator Rameen Hayat speaks to Tamar Chnorhokian, Sarah Ayoub, Michael Mohammed Ahmad and Patrick Ness about diversity and tokenism in Young Adult fiction.

Dates & Times:
Saturday 5 May 2018 at 10am

Programmed in association with SWF Youth Curators. Supported by the City of Parramatta and the Department of Family and Community Services.
