TOMORROW: Don't miss kidlit movie night with At-Risk Summer!

Tomorrow night, SCBWI-WWA is in for a real treat: kidlit movie night! This year we're featuring At-Risk Summer, a documentary by e.e. Charlton-Trujillo, author of the 2014 Stonewall Award-winning novel, Fat Angie. You can read more about e. here.

Whether you're looking for ways to engage your audience at school visits, want to see what Kirkus called a "force of nature" in action, or are simply a fan of young-adult literature, you won't want to miss this powerful presentation. Besides e. herself and a slew of young adults, the film also features authors Laurie Halse Anderson, Meg Medina, Kathy Erskine, A.S. King, Matt de la Peña, Ellen Hopkins, Michelle Embree, and Pat Zieltow Miller!

If you haven't seen it already, here's the trailer for the film:

And, if that hasn't convinced you yet, here's an interview with e. that shares a little more of the backstory behind At-Risk Summer, and an article from Publishers Weekly about it, and an article e. wrote for the Huffington Post.

Seriously, this is a very special, limited-release showing. Be there.

Oh, and if you're still wondering how to pronounce e.'s name, just have a listen here.

When: 7 p.m. Thursday, February 19, 2015
(The usual time, but please try to arrive early so we can start on time!) 

Where: Seattle Pacific University's Demaray Hall, Room 150 (the usual place!)
