“A lot of times, we define feminism as equality, but if we’re measuring that against power structures that only got to power through oppression, then it’s not good enough.” – Natalia Sylvester
Born in Lima, Peru, Natalia Sylvester is an award-winning writer of novels, essays, and poetry, including two novels for adults, CHASING THE SUN and EVERYONE KNOWS YOU GO HOME. Her debut YA novel, RUNNING, is a 2020 Junior Library Guild Selection that has been called “a searing exploration of privilege” by Shelf Awareness and an embodiment of “the theme of our decade: to stand up and speak up for what we believe in” by Booklist. Sylvester’s essays have appeared in the New York Times, Bustle, Catapult, Latina magazine, and McSweeney’s Publishing. She received a BA in creative writing from the University of Miami and now lives and writes in Texas.
