Engaging fans across the internet, author Laurie Halse Anderson (Speak, Shout) and artists Leila del Duca will appear in a virtual conversation with Politics and Prose based in Washington D.C., to celebrate the release of their first DC project, Wonder Woman: Tempest Tossed. The creative team will discuss continuing Wonder Woman’s empowering legacy and how they re-imagined the iconic DC Super Hero for a new, teenage audience.
Wonder Woman: Tempest Tossed explores Wonder Woman’s teen years and is a timely story about the refugee experience, activism, and finding the love and strength to create change. Anderson and del Duca examine powerful social issues like trafficking, gentrification, poverty, and American Idealism, while showing how important it is to be brave and fight back in the face of adversity. The themes of the graphic novel have earned it praise from Entertainment Weekly, People Magazine, Ms. Magazine, Today.com, in addition to Publishers Weekly, Kirkus Reviews, Booklist and School Library Journal.
On July 15, fans are encouraged to purchase Wonder Woman: Tempest Tossed through Politics and Prose online ordering site or curbside pickup before or after viewing Live virtual discussion. Fans can register for the free event via Eventbrite. All purchased books will include a free bookplate signed by Anderson and del Duca.
