Young Adult Literature Weekender Saturday Pass

Part of Young Adult Literature Weekender

Join us for the fourth year of the Young Adult Literature Weekender at London Literature Festival.

The day features panel discussions and workshops with the most exciting voices in YA today, from novelists and spoken word artists to bloggers and vloggers. The day’s events are hosted by award-winning spoken word artist, LionHeart.

On Saturday we welcome some of the authors from A Change Is Gonna Come, an anthology championing diverse voices in YA fiction, for a New Voices spotlight event. Authors Aisha Bushby, Mary Bello, Yasmin Rahman and Phoebe Roy read their work, discuss their path to being included in the anthology and future plans, with Wei Ming Kam from BAME in Publishing Network to chair.

The day’s events also include an in conversation with Hannah Witton, sex positive vlogger and presenter with over 350,000 YouTube subscribers. Hannah joins us to discuss Doing It, a book about figuring out how to build and enjoy healthy relationships with your family, friends, romantically and with yourself.
