Four Elements, Four Nations - A Look into the Social and Political Themes of Avatar: The Last Airbender

Over twelve years ago, "Avatar: The Last Airbender" aired on Nickelodeon, changing the landscape for what could be considered child-appropriate storytelling. Support on Kickstarter:

Now live on Kickstarter:


Avatar: The Last Airbender captured the hearts of both kids and adults from 2005 on, and with a compelling story, lovable characters, and immersive world, it’s easy to see why the show remains much-loved today. However, more mature topics, like genocide and child abuse, were explored in the show, and I - Katrina Haffner - will be writing a book about these many social and political themes. Join me on February 1st, as I launch my Kickstarter for Four Elements, Four Nations and begin writing full-time.


Backers will have access to rewards such as draft excerpts, custom A:TLA-related art, and a signed copy of the book. To be notified of when the Kickstarter is launched, sign up for email updates. You can also join my Facebook group for more news and a free excerpt of the book.
