Browne as she launches debut YA book, Chlorine Sky!  Hagan reads from her forthcoming Reckless, Glorious Girl and Watson reads from her forthcoming Love is a Revolution to set the stage for Browne's reading from Chlorine Sky.  All three authors then come together to talk about the power of friendship (as young girls the age of their books' protagonists, and as adult writers); flexing the different writing muscles of YA narrative and verse; and celebrating the ordinary beauties of girlhood and Blackness.
