Sun 18 March 2018,

If you are an avid reader of YA fiction, then it doesn’t matter what age you are – you won’t want to miss this special opportunity to hear from some of the leading YA writers working in the UK today.

Author of Beautiful Broken Things, A Quiet Kind of Thunder and Goodbye Perfect, Sara Barnard loves books, book people and book things. Her debut novel was a Zoella Book Club Choice.

Patrice Lawrence (pictured) is the author of Orangeboy which won the Bookseller’s YA Book Prize 2017 and the Waterstones Children’s Book Prize for Older Children. In 2017 she published her second novel, Indigo Donut.

Holly Bourne’s first two books, Soulmates and The Manifesto on How to be Interesting, have been critically acclaimed and translated into six languages. The first book in the ‘Normal‘ series, Am I Normal Yet?, was chosen as a World Book Night book for 2016 and has inspired the formation of Spinster Clubs around the country.

Holly, Sara and Patrice will join Eleanor Pender to discuss their love of writing, how they approach telling stories for a young adult reader, the importance of the YA community, and their forthcoming projects.

This is an absolute must for every teenage reader in Bristol and beyond, with a special opportunity to meet the writers at a book signing after the event.

Part of Bristol Women’s Literature Festival. The Bristol Women’s Literature Festival is presented in partnership with Bristol Festival of Ideas, Watershed and Bristol Women’s Voice.
