Are you ready for a summer of author talks? I am part of the Bronx Anti-Prom Committee of the New York Public Library and we are having a series of exciting author interviews, leading up to the BIG EVENT, a dance party on August 5th!
So kicking off with these author talks is an author that I deeply admire and excited to talk to, YA bestselling and award-winning author, Dean Atta!
Join the Bronx Anti-Prom in a discussion with Dean Atta, award winning author of the YA novel in verse, The Black Flamingo! Join us as we will talk about his writing career and also about his latest YA release, Only On The Weekends!
This program is part of the 2022 Bronx Anti-Prom Virtual Programs. The theme this year is ‘Bronx Rising’, a celebration of Bronx resilience both in the Past and Present. Go HERE for more programs!
Dean Atta is a British author hailing from London and living in Glasgow. He is a member of Malika’s Poetry Kitchen and a patron of LGBT+ History Month.
