    Episode 1: Sorry Not Sorry Panel

    24/04/2019 Duración: 43min

    In the first episode of the YALLCAST, we revisit one of our panels from 2018's YALLWEST festival. In Sorry Not Sorry, Maurene Goo moderates a discussion on unapologetically ambitious girls: why do we love writing them, and why can they be so hard to write? Maurene is joined by panelists Laurie Devore, Marie Lu, Richelle Mead, Lauren Oliver, and Tamora Pierce. YALLWEST 2019 is coming up! It's Saturday May 4th at Santa Monica High School. Visit for a complete schedule and list of authors. It's going to be a great time and we can't wait to see you there!
