YA Lit Extravaganza 

When: Sat., March 2, 1 p.m. 2013
Price: free

Young adult (aka YA) literature runs the gamut of weird emotions and fantasies that consume the heated minds of its growing-pain-afflicted readership. (Anecdotally, before I was lucky enough to discover Judy Blume, I once spent a Chicken Soup for the Teenage Soul-inflected summer blazing through 26 paperbacks about young love torn apart by car crashes and/or cancer.) But the genre isn't really much of a genre at all past its target audience: Themes run anywhere from self-identity, family, and sexuality to the far netherworlds of fantastical science fiction. On Saturday, Mar. 2, join four decidedly diverse YA writers -- Sean Beaudoin, Martha Brockenbrough, Kevin Emerson, and Cat Patrick -- at Mrs. Dalloway's (2904 College Ave., Berkeley) for an afternoon celebrating their novels and current trends in teen lit. Just make sure to leave your dog-eared copies of Chicken Soup at home. 1 p.m., free.
