Three Authors Discuss How Identity and Community Inspire Their Writing- A Conversation with Sheela Chari, Sayantani DasGupta, and Veera Hiranandani moderated by fellow author Jimin Han.

Why do writers choose the subject matter they do and how do those ideas becomes stories? Three award winning young adult authors, Sheela Chari, Sayantani DasGupta, and Veera Hiranandani, along with moderator and fellow author, Jimin Han, discuss how their personal cultural backgrounds have influenced their writing process.

For these authors growing up, it was often difficult to find characters and stories which reflected their individual Asian identities. They have all used their own perspectives and backgrounds as an opportunity to fill in those empty spaces and diversify the literary landscape.

Other topics include why they enjoy writing for young people, where they find inspiration, and how being part of the same writing group for many years has provided needed support.
