If you weren’t able to see Tammy when she was in Seattle, you can still read about her University Bookstore event! The Daily has a write-up of the event, which also featured authors Rachel Hartman and Lish McBride. Check it out for some highlights of the event. As the author notes:
YA fiction, which is full of brave, headstrong, mostly female heroines who stand up to authority and earn the right to be taken seriously, has been one of the most positive forms of media that I consumed while growing up. And I still do read it, despite snide comments from adults and peers that they “don’t count” as “real” novels.
Remember: you’re never too old to read YA!
