Tash McAdam

June 29th, 2023

A trans activist, educator and author, Tash McAdam’s stories speak to those who often find themselves on the sidelines of representation. In their latest book, Airlock (Orca $10.95), McAdam blends their own lived experience with that of the protagonist Brick, a nonbinary teen living on a futuristic version of Earth. Airlock is a suspenseful and action-packed space adventure, where Brick faces off against authority, pirates and their own anxiety. McAdam’s background in Computer Science and karate help bring their sci-fi stories to life, and the hi-lo structure of their stories make them both inclusive and accessible for young readers. 9781459836600
