In the forthcoming graphic memoir No Ivy League, Hazel Newelvant (who prefers the pronoun they) looks back on the summer when they were 17 years-old, working a seasonal job clearing ivy from the forest around Portland, Oregon where Newlevant grew up. Homeschooled, affluent and insulated, Newlevant is working for the first time alongside teens of different backgrounds, race, and social standing, and is soon forced to confront illusions about the world, white privilege and Portland’s history of racial segregation. No Ivy League will published by Roar, Lion Forge’s YA imprint, in August.
