Adib Khorram In Conversation with Laurie Halse Anderson via Zoom (8/26)

Adib Khorram, author of DARIUS THE GREAT DESERVES BETTER (Dial Book for Young Readers), will be in conversation with Laurie Halse Anderson at a virtual event hosted by East City Bookshop via Zoom on Wednesday, August 26 at 7:00pm (ET).

In this companion to the award-winning Darius the Great Is Not Okay, Darius suddenly has it all: a boyfriend, an internship, a spot on the soccer team. It’s everything he’s ever wanted–but what if he deserves better?

Adib Khorram lives in Kansas City, Missouri. His debut novel Darius the Great Is Not Okay received the William C. Morris Award and APALA Young Adult Literature Award. The novel was also named a Best Book of 2018 by TIME, Buzzfeed, The Wall Street Journal, and The Boston Globe, among others. When he isn’t writing (or at his day job as a graphic designer), you can probably find him trying to get his hundred-yard freestyle under a minute, learning to do a Lutz jump, or steeping a cup of oolong.

Laurie Halse Anderson is a New York Times bestselling author whose writing spans young readers, teens, and adults. Combined, her books have sold more than 8 million copies. Her new book, SHOUT, a memoir-in-verse about surviving sexual assault at the age of thirteen and a manifesta for the #MeToo era, has received widespread critical acclaim and is Laurie’s eighth New York Times bestselling book.
