Death and Taxes Performer Spotlight: Sarah A.R.P

Sarah is the first person to ever speak at Testify. Originally from McAllen, Texas, she has called Austin home for 15 years. She has a bachelor’s degree in English from Harvard University, a master’s degree in Information Studies from the University of Texas at Austin, and a fiance who is a native Austinite. Her first young adult book, Choose Your Weapon, has been described as “The Lord of the Rings meets The Breakfast Club” and was one of Kirkus Reviews’ Best Books of the Year in 2013. Choose Your Weapon and its sequel, Plan Your Attack, are both available at BookPeople and Amazon, and her third book is due out later this year. You can learn way too much about her life on her blog at, and you can follow her on Twitter at @ThatsAGirlsCar.

Sometimes loss is pretty straightforward, and sometimes it’s incredibly complicated.  This Thursday, Sarah’s leading us through her playfully dark and heartfelt experience with loss in her story, Nothing.
