Postponed: Veronica Roth: Chosen Ones

Chicago Humanities Festival

In fantasy novels, do teenage heroes get their happily ever after, or is it impossible to move on from the trauma of saving the world? Veronica Roth, best-selling author of the Divergent Series, explores this question in her newest book, Chosen Ones. Set in a dystopian Chicago, Roth’s novel follows the story of five adults who, having fulfilled their destiny by defeating an evil entity, must now grapple with the dark aftermath of leadership. Join Roth at CHF for a discussion on how books reimagine our ideas about the city, protagonists, and where a hero’s journey begins and ends. 

Veronica Roth is the #1 New York Times best-selling author of the Divergent series (Divergent, Insurgent, Allegiant, and Four: A Divergent Collection), the Carve the Mark duology (Carve the Mark, the Fates Divide), The End and Other Beginnings collection of short fiction, and many short stories and essays. Her latest book is Chosen Ones. Roth lives in Chicago.

Chicago Humanities Festival is postponing on sale dates and working on modifications to their spring season. Please check the CHF website for any developments. Your patience and support is appreciated at this time.
