7. Differences and Similarities: YA Fiction (Festival Field Trip)
Readings and Conversation
Moderator Shelley Tanaka
High school life for Janna, a Muslim student, and for Sidney, a Jewish student, has many challenges. Both characters face and learn to deal with personal anxieties, along with the tension between modern attitudes they see played out around them, and the traditional expectations that do not always reflect the reality of their lives. Together, novelists S. K. Ali and Leanne Lieberman talk with Shelley Tanaka about their characters unique perspectives on universal themes of identity, family, friendship, and sexuality.
