Vancouver Writers Fest

21. Alternate Realities

The Vancouver Writers Fest presents


Moderator: Anna Ling Kaye

Four young adult novelists share their brave new worlds with students and ponder how they both create and sustain these wildly creative locations. Celebrated award-winner Ashley Little’s depiction of high school in Confessions of a Teenage Leper may feel familiar… but there’s a bizarre, deadly disease at its heart. In David A. Robertson’s supernatural tale, Monsters, set on the Wounded Sky Nation reserve, teenager Cole Harper struggles to fit in. Further afield, Rachel Hartman shares a tale of knights in armour—and brave girls bucking gender roles—in Tess of the Road. Finally, Paula Morris reimagines Rome as a place for duelling gods and goddesses in The Eternal City. Students will be enthralled by these charismatic writers sharing their techniques for world-building.

Suitable for grades 8-12 and adults.
