CANCELLED - Virtual Event: Laurie Halse Anderson
This Event has been cancelled.
Princess Diana of Themyscira’s 16th birthday means acceptance into the warrior tribe of the Amazons. But her birthday celebrations are cut short when rafts carrying refugees break through the barrier that separates her island home from the outside world. When Diana defies the Amazons to try to bring the outsiders to safety, she finds herself swept away by the stormy sea.
Cut off from everything she’s ever known, Diana becomes a refugee in an unfamiliar land. She must survive in the world beyond Themyscira for the first time–a world that is filled with danger and injustice unlike anything she’s ever experienced. With new battles to be fought and new friends to be made, she must redefine what it means to
belong, to be an Amazon, and to make a difference.
