Untwine
 by Edwidge Danticat
Giselle Boyer and her identical twin, Isabelle, are as close as sisters can be, even as their family seems to be unraveling. Then the Boyers have a tragic encounter that will shatter everyone’s world forever.
Giselle wakes up in the hospital, injured and unable to speak or move. Trapped in the prison of her own body, Giselle must revisit her past in order to understand how the people closest to her — her friends, her parents, and above all, Isabelle, her twin — have shaped and defined her. Will she allow her love for her family and friends to lead her to recovery? Or will she remain lost in a spiral of longing and regret?

presented by Kweli Journal
Saturday, April 9, 2016

At a time when only 10 percent of all children’s and YA books are written by or feature people of color, the conference will connect new writers with top professionals across the publishing industry.
Edwidge Danticat, author of Untwine, will give the keynote address. Her speech will be followed by panels on “Publishing 101,” trends in the publishing landscape, writing children’s picture books and middle-grade and YA novels, and advice on submitting manuscripts to agents and working with editors, among other topics.
More than twenty agents and editors are expected to attend in search of new talent, alongside established authors like Daniel José Older (Shadowshaper), Nnedi Okorafor (Who Fears Death), and Sheela Chari (Vanished).
