Graphic Novel/Gaming Stage
It’s never easy growing up. Moderated by librarian Jennifer Thompson, Travis Dandro, Lisa Naffziger, and Kelsey Wroten explore the difficulties of adolescence for very different kinds of teens. In Dandro’s memoir, he’s struggling to break his family’s cycle of substance abuse, trauma, and violence. In Naffziger’s thriller, a freshman-to-be negotiates the darkness behind her parent’s over-protectiveness. And Wroten’s bitingly funny novel spotlights an aspiring queer artist who hasn’t quite found her way to artistic fulfillment.
