Virtual Prom: Leah Johnson presents You Should See Me in a Crown
In conversation with Bezi Yohannes
Get your prom queen crown and join Greenlight’s virtual prom with your host Leah Johnson, author of You Should See Me in a Crown! In Johnson’s smart / hilarious / black girl magic / own voices / queer prom rom-com, Liz Lighty has always believed she's too black, too poor, too awkward to shine in her small, rich, prom-obsessed midwestern town; she’s focused on getting into college and getting out of town. But when the financial aid she was counting on unexpectedly falls through, Liz's plans come crashing down...until she's reminded of her school's scholarship for prom king and queen. But new girl Mack—smart, funny, and just as much of an outsider as Liz—is also in the running for queen. Will falling for the competition keep Liz from her dreams...or make them come true? Bookstagrammer Bezi Yohannes joins Johnson in conversation, with a dance party to follow – you can wear your prom attire in case you’re picked to appear on video and join the fun! And leading up to the event, post a selfie in your finery (and your own take on the crown) with the hashtag #OwnYourCrown on social media to be featured in Leah and Bezi’s all-star slide show of be-crowned prom gorgeousness!
