ECCC: Babes and Bitches: Redefining the Strong Female Character

  • WSCC 603 705 Pike Street Seattle, WA, 98101 United States (map)

With the popularity of books like The Hunger Games, Divergent, and Children of Blood and Bone, there’s a lot of discussion about ‘strong female characters’, especially in young adult books. However, this label is often applied very narrowly and in a way that reinforces stereotypes instead of breaking them. In this panel, we’re going to pick this label apart and explore the many ways women are smashing the literary patriarchy. All panelists are authors published by major publishing houses.

The signing will occur before this panel, at 5:15PM.
