Winner of the Lambda Literary Award for Best Gay Romanc, TJ Klune, believes it’s important, now more than ever, to have accurate, positive, representation in stories. His debut YA novel, The Extraordinaries, is a queer coming-of-age story about a fanboy with ADHD and the heroes he loves. After a chance encounter with Shadow Star, Nova City’s mightiest hero, Nick Bell sets out to make himself extraordinary. And he’ll do it with or without the reluctant help of Seth Gray, Nick’s best friend (and maybe the love of his life).
Joining in conversation is Bill Konigsberg, the award-winning author of six young adult novels and recipient of the PEN Center USA Literary Award, Stonewall Book Award, Sid Fleishman Award for Humor, and the Lambda Literary Award.
