Join young adult authors Lilliam Rivera and Demetra Brodsky in conversation. Lilliam Rivera is an award-winning author and was named a “2017 Face to Watch” by the LA Times. Her first novel, The Education of Margot Sanchez has been nominated for many awards and featured in magazines. Dealing in Dreams is full of grit, danger, and strong female characters. Dealing in Dreams is about an all girl gang run by sixteen-year-old Nalah in a dystopian future. Nalah dreams about getting off the streets and moving into the Mega Towers, where only a choice few live. To earn the privilege of living in the Tower, she must prove her loyalty to the city’s founder and go on a quest in search of another gang, the Ashé Ryders. Along the way Nalah has to decide where home really is: the Tower residence she dreams of, or the gang she protects?
Demetra 's debut novel, Divesmack, has been described by bookseller Constance as a “contemporary novel full of deception and manipulation, with an unreliable narrator who holds the truth of his past locked away in his own head.”
