Girls Write Now Live: Unmuted with Naima Coster
April 23 – 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm
Girls Write Now Live is free for youth and open to the public for a suggested donation of $20.
Join us on April 23 for an evening of boundary-pushing performances that will deepen your understanding of the world and yourself! You’ll witness electrifying original storytelling from teen writers who are loudly and proudly sharing their truths through prose, poetry, podcasting, video, illustration and more forms of multimedia work.
In this series, we are also proud to honor women authors and media makers who will deliver keynotes at the events. By turning off their mute buttons, they inspire and help amplify the voices of the next generation of writers and activists. This event features:
- 6PM-6:25PM ET: Live Pre-Show Q&A in Zoom with Naima Coster, author of What’s Mine and Yours (Grand Central Publishing)
- 6:30-7:30PM ET: Girls Write Now Live: Unmuted Streams Live on YouTube (The link to watch will be emailed to you.)
In this digital world, our Girls Write Now Live: Unmuted performance series is more than a show, it’s a movement—a gathering that pulses with the power of shared stories. A celebration of diversity and authenticity. The refreshing cocktail of connection and community we all long for during this time of isolation.
BOOK OF THE MONTH GIVEAWAY: When you register to attend the Live Pre-Show, you’ll be entered to win one year (12 months) of free books from Book of the Month!
