Using both popular examples from the literary canon (The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn and To Kill a Mockingbird) and her own work (including Dear Martin and Dear Justyce), award-winning, bestselling author Nic Stone will highlight the ways fiction has been used to raise social awareness, challenge the status quo, and make change.

About The Author: Nic Stone is an Atlanta native and a Spelman College graduate. After working extensively in teen mentoring and living in Israel for several years, she returned to the United States to write full-time. Nic is the author of Dear Martin, a New York Times bestseller and 2018 William C. Morris Award finalist, which explores a teen's struggles with race relations. She is also the author of Odd One Out, a novel about discovering oneself and who it is okay to love, which was an NPR Best Book of the Year and a Rainbow Book List Top Ten selection, and Jackpot, a love-ish story that takes a searing look at economic inequality. Most recently, Nic published a sequel to Dear Martin called Dear Justyce, casting a spotlight on the American juvenile justice system.
