Parents in Middle-Grade Fiction: Live Session with Q&A
Why are the parents so often absent or dead in middle-grade novels?
Join debut middle-grade authors Reina Luz Alegre (The Dream Weaver) and Anika Fajardo (What If a Fish) as they discuss the role of fictional parents (or the lack thereof) in middle-grade and the role of family, particularly in Latinx lit.
Bring your questions about writing and reading about parents and family, and learn more about these authors' debut books.
