STRASNICK: I've just done a series of events where the kids in the audience have been actual kids. Which is awesome, they are charming, smart and adorable -- and i'm sure they can handle a swear word or two. But I write older YA, and recently read a section from my latest -- kissing twins, binge drinking, sexual ambiguity, f-bombs -- to a room full of small, sweet-faced angels eating snacks and drinking juice. Fingers crossed I didn't destroy their souls.
Come see the destroyer of souls on Y.A. Author Night at Vermin on the Mount on Sunday, November 7 at 8pm.
