The neo-Gothic atmosphere of the Knox sets the perfect stage for mapping out the post-apocalyptic imaginings of YA authors Veronica Roth and Tahereh Mafi as they read and discuss themes from their latest bestsellers.
Divergent by Veronica Roth is the #1 New York Times bestselling novel that inspired the blockbuster film by the same name. It is a gripping tale of electrifying choices, powerful consequences, unexpected romance and a deeply flawed "perfect society."
Ignite Me by Tahereh Mafi is the latest installment in the bestselling Shatter Me series — a dystopian novel with a paranormal twist about a 17-year-old girl with a poisonous touch, and a world too busy crumbling apart to care.
