Featuring Incredible YA Across Time and Space!


Join us for this YA Virtual Event that brings you and your teen reader never-before-seen futures and cutthroat adventures!

We are beyond excited to help talk up the latest page-turning YA titles by ALLYSON DAHLIN, LILLIE LAINOFF and XIRAN JAY ZHAO: in conversation! Dive into wild alt-history, mecha-misadventures, and royals getting their just desserts as this talented duo reads from their work, swap stories about their journeys in YA, and so much more!


  • Iron Widow by XIRAN JAY ZHAO! The boys of Huaxia dream of pairing up with girls to pilot Chrysalises, giant transforming robots that can battle the aliens that lurk beyond the Great Wall of China. It doesn’t matter that the girls die from the mental strain...  until Zetian, 18-year-old concubine-pilot, rises up to defy her world as an Iron Window: a girl who can sacrifice boys instead.

  • Cake Eater by ALLYSON DAHLIN! The year is 30708 and she has a million followers on social media. She uses her fashion-forward eye to pick the perfect angle and filter on every photo. She’s Marie Antoinette and she’s arrived in the Franc Kingdom to marry the prince, secure an alliance, and rake in likes from her fans. But will the history we all know so well repeat itself? 


  • One for All by LILLIE LAINOFFTania de Batz is most herself with a sword in her hand. Everyone thinks her dizziness makes her just “a sick girl," but she wants to be a fencer like her father, a former Musketeer. Then Papa is mysteriously murdered, and as his dying wish, he sends Tania to finishing school. L’Académie des Mariées is a training ground for new Musketeers: women who are socialites on the surface, but who seduce men into giving up secrets — and don’t shy away from swordfights.
