Meet the Author: Angie Thomas

September 13, 2018 7:00 pm @ 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm

Hear about how the Black Lives Matter-inspired novel The Hate U Give — an instant bestseller — speaks to the heart of race, activism and social change in America today from the author herself, Angie Thomas.

Discover how to find your activism and turn the political into the personal, inspiring action and speaking truth to power. Delve into why young black people need to see themselves in fiction and why the world needs more compelling depictions of black girls in art. And get inspired as Thomas delivers a compelling argument for empathy, how it is a more powerful tool than sympathy, and how — when done right — fiction can help us find our voice, or lend it to others.

Event includes presentation followed by audience Q&A, book sale and book signing.

Cost: $20 tickets for priority seating and book signing. $10 tickets for general seating. Rows will be released from front to back for the book signing.
