In this minisode from FWF 2018 Legacy Books, Alison Evans talks about the books that shaped their ideas about gender and human intimacy. They also share some insights into contemporary YA fiction in Australia and how the genre is paving the way for complex discussions among teens.
“In all these books, the authors really respect their audiences. They don’t shy away from new ideas or ideas where adults don’t speak to teens about. These authors tackle these issues head on and really show respect.”
