Making History Timeless: Troublemaker by John Cho with Sarah Suk ft. Sarah Suk
Show Notes

It's hard enough to talk about recurring examples of racial violence with friends, much less figure out how to talk to kids about racism and our role in making change.

Troublemaker, by actor John Cho and Sarah Suk, is a new historical fiction for middle-grade readers that can serve as an amazing starting point for conversation!

Troublemaker follows the events of the 1992 LA Riots (Sa-I-Gu), as seen through the eyes of a 12-year-old Korean American boy. 

We chat with Sarah about:

  •  how she and John honored the complex, tragic realities of the LA Riots, while writing a story that is appropriate for middle-grade readers 
  • memorable reflections along the way 
  • tips for writing historical fiction
