Young Adult Literature Weekender Sunday Pass

Part of Young Adult Literature Weekender

Hear from fiction writers, spoken word artists and bloggers in a day of talks and workshops, all part of Young Adult Literature Weekend.

Sunday’s events include a panel of four contributors from the A Change Is Gonna Come anthology discussing the importance of change in YA fiction writing by BAME authors. The lineup includes Nikesh Shukla, Tanya Byrne and Inua Ellams, chaired by blogger and reviewer Mariam Khan.

We also welcome Tracy Chevalier, author of eight novels including international bestseller Girl with a Pearl Earring, who speaks of her new novel New Boy, a retelling of Shakespeare’s Othello set in 1970s America.

The day’s events are hosted by poet and performer Yomi Sode (GREEdS).
