Body Positivity in Young Adult Lit + Reading from TO BE HONEST (ages 12+)
March 25, 2020 @ 4:00 pm - 4:45 pm EDT
Author Maggie Ann Martin explores what body positivity means and how to create thoughtful, smart, fat characters in the young adult literature space. Let’s examine the power young readers gain when they read characters that have agency over their own body, and how we can instill in them a confidence we may have just discovered in ourselves. She will also be reading an excerpt from her novel, To Be Honest.
Maggie Ann Martin hails from Des Moines, Iowa but moonlights as a New Yorker.
