About the Author:
“Mexican American writer, filmmaker and Texas native, e.E. Charlton-Trujillo is the Stonewall Award-Winning author of Fat Angie and other books for teens and children. Kirkus Reviews celebrated her as a “force of nature” for her activism with youth as seen in the documentary At-Risk Summer. A film that chronicles her unorthodox book tour across America to empower youth on the fringe via writing and raw discussion. She is the co-founder of the non-profit, Never Counted Out, which empowers at-risk youth via free book donations and artists mentorship. Her highly anticipated novel Fat Angie: Rebel Girl Revolution releases March 5, 2019.
“On her last book tour, Eunice road tripped across the country and met with at-risk youth at organizations and bookstores, while being filmed by a documentary crew for the documentary At-Risk Summer. Following her tour, she formed a non-profit to bridge the gap between at-risk youth and artists called Never Counted Out. The book went on to win the Stonewall Award for exceptional merit relating to the gay/lesbian/bisexual/transgender experience and was chosen as a Lambda Literary finalist. Now, with the release of the sequel of the book, we would are incorporating bookstore events with visits to nearby LGBT youth programs. She is a pro at in-school visits and is a strong presenter.”
