GuerrillaReads No. 48: Cecil Castellucci at Occupy LA

Author Cecil Castellucci (aka @MissCecil) stopped by Occupy LA with GuerrillaReads yesterday and read from her young adult novel, Rose Sees Red. It’s set in 1982, and in this scene, Rose and her friends stumble upon the largest demonstration against nuclear arms in American history.

Castellucci has written YA novels, graphic novels, short stories, an opera libretto and more. She once told Bookslut in an interview

I think that everybody can live creatively and I don’t see any difference between say, math and ballet. I think someone can even make something traditionally not “arty,” like being a business person, a kind of art form.

More about Castellucci on her website. You can also find her on Twitter and Facebook.
