So without further ado – here are all the event details you need:
Sarah Crossan in conversation with Tanya Landman
“One broke my heart and mended it” Cecelia Ahern on One
“Gripping, vivid, superb” The Independent on Buffalo Soldier
Being a young adult is hard, never mind when you’re a conjoined twin facing a heart-wrenching decision or a slave trapped in a world of injustice and inequality. Two of the finest Young Adult authors writing today come together to talk about their award-winning novels, the inspiration behind their writing, and the power of reading for a YA audience.
Meet Sarah Crossan and Tanya Landman, the 2016 and 2015 winners of the prestigious CLIP Carnegie Medal. Sarah Crossan’sOne is a moving and beautifully crafted novel about identity, love and the unbreakable bond between sisters. In the hard-hitting Buffalo Soldier Tanya Ledman deals with race, gender and inequality against the backdrop of the aftermath of the American Civil War.
Both powerful and emotionally driven novels will make for a lively and impassioned conversation about YA, its writers and its readers. Chaired by Harriet Minter this event will be sure to inspire and entertain. Join us for drinks, a book signing and an exclusive opportunity to meet the authors.
