If you haven’t heard of the #NewDayNewNormal tour, where have you been hiding – under a rock? In the Sahara desert? This tour is a coming together of great minds – David Levithan (YA author extraordinaire who recently released ‘Another Day’, sequel to his bestselling ‘Every Day’) and Lisa Williamson (who released her mind-blowingly good UKYA debut ‘The Art Of Being Normal’ earlier this year).
Because David writes a lot of novels about gay teenagers and Lisa’s debut is focused on the life of a transgender teenager who hasn’t yet come out to his parents, this evening held a lot of discussion about gender, sexuality, identity and just being able to feel comfortable as yourself.
The discussion was chaired by Chloe Combi, author of ‘Generation Z’ – a non-fiction collection of stories from the lives of teenagers that she interviewed all over the UK.
