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 and Greta Johnsen, host of WBEZ’s Nerdette podcast, for a livestream program about how books reimagine our ideas about Chicago, protagonists, and where a hero’s journey begins and ends. This program is generously underwritten by The Allstate Insurance Company.
