A Force for Social Change: The Lavin Agency Welcomes New York Times Bestselling Author Nic Stone

To build an anti-racist society, we must first recognize our shared humanity, says #1 New York Times bestselling author Nic Stone. In her vivid and timely novels, Stone lays bare the systemic racism in our nation, teaches us to recognize our shared experiences, and creates the foundations necessary for dismantling oppression. The Lavin Agency is proud to welcome her as one of our newest speakers.  

Called “an unforgettable tour de force of social-justice and activist literature,” Nic Stone’s debut novel Dear Justyce is taught in classrooms across the country today. She expertly balances messages of economic and racial hardship with levity—offering humor and hope alongside crucial lessons about accountability. Recently, Stone crafted a Marvel series inspired by the blockbuster hit Black Panther, and her latest book Fast Pitch is slated for release in August of this year. Her body of work is widely acclaimed, counting The Hate U Give author Angie Thomas among her many fans—she calls Stone’s debut a “must-read” and describes her writing as “honest and gut-wrenching.”

 

In her down-to-earth talks, Stone draws on themes from her work, revealing how empathy and human connection motivate us to act as a force for social change. Audiences will come away from her talks enlightened, empowered, and armed with the tools they need to effectively address social injustice.
