Don’t miss Julie Lythcott-Haims and Dashka Slater at ACPA19!

Author Plenary Session
1:30 p.m.

John B. Hynes Convention Center
Auditorium

Author panel with a book signing to follow
All plenary attendees will receive complimentary copies of Real American and The 57 Bus

Julie Lythcott-Haims

Julie Lythcott-Haims is the author of Real American  and  How to Raise an Adult. She served as dean of freshmen and undergraduate advising at Stanford University. She holds a B.A. from Stanford, a J.D. from Harvard Law School, and an M.F.A. in writing from California College of the Arts. She is a member of the San Francisco Writers’ Grotto, and resides in the Bay Area with her husband, their two children, and her mother. Lythcott-Haims’s memoir, Real Americanevokes her personal battle with the low self-esteem that American racism inflicts on people of color. The only child of a marriage between an African American father and a white British mother, she shows how microaggressions, in addition to blunt force insults, can puncture a person’s inner life. Real American also expresses, through Lythcott-Haims’s path to self-acceptance, the healing power of community in overcoming the hurtful isolation of being incessantly considered “the other.” Lythcott-Haims’s previous book, How to Raise an Adult, emerged from her decade as Stanford University’s Dean of Freshmen, where she was known for her fierce advocacy for young adults and received the university’s Lloyd W. Dinkelspiel Award for creating “the” atmosphere that defines the undergraduate experience. Toward the end of her tenure as dean, she began speaking and writing widely on the harm of helicopter parenting.

Dashka Slater

Dashka Slater is an award-winning journalist whose articles have appeared in Newsweek, Salon, The New York Times Magazine, and Mother Jones. The recipient of a Creative Writing Fellowship from the National Endowment for the Arts, Slater is also author of many books, including The Antlered Ship, a Junior Library Guild selection, and Escargot, winner of the Wanda Gag Read Aloud Award. Slater’s most recent book, The 57 Bus, details the true story of Sasha Fleischman and Richard Thomas, two teenagers from different walks of life in Oakland, California, whose lives become tragically connected. Sasha was an agender teen from the middle-class foothills of Oakland who attended a small private high school; Richard lived in the economically challenged flatlands and attended a large public high school. After school each day, Sasha and Richard’s paths overlapped on the 57 bus for a mere eight minutes. But, one afternoon, their lives became indelibly intertwined when Sasha fell asleep and woke up to their skirt enveloped in flames, after Richard ignited it with a lighter. Sasha suffered severe burns, and Richard was charged with two hate crimes and faced life imprisonment. This case garnered international attention, thrusting both teenagers into the spotlight. But, in The 57 Bus, Slater shows that what might at first seem like a simple matter of right and wrong, justice and injustice, victim and criminal, is something far more complicated—and heartbreaking. Slater first chronicled this story in The New York Times Magazine. In The 57 Bus, she expertly expands upon her original article, providing a riveting exploration of race, class, gender, morality, and forgiveness. Slater’s honest insights gleaned from both teens’ lives will inspire you to rethink all you know about crime, punishment, and empathy. The 57 Bus was the winner of the 2018 Stonewall Award, a 2018 YALSA Award for Excellence in Nonfiction Finalist, a Junior Library Guild Selection, and a Los Angeles Times Book Award Finalist.
