Sister Act: Talking Representation in YA Literature

A Short Documentary hosted by Feminist Fiction, 2014. 

Sami Brinkley, at 16, has grown up surrounded by strong, literary women. She and her sister Nicole Brinkley (Formerly of YA Book Blog Wordforteens and Editor-In-Chief of YAInterrobang) have spent countless hours debating and discussing the different books they’ve read. The latest cause they champion? Better representation in YA Literature. Nicole and Sami spent some time talking about the importance of seeing a variety of characters represented in their books and some strategies for concerned readers to voice their support for the movement.
