"What Makes A Girl Strong?" - Sara Barnard, Catherine Doyle, Melinda Salisbury and Katherine Webber discuss Female Heroines and Leading Ladies

Thursday 2nd February 2017
19:00 at Waterstones, London - Kensington

What makes a girl “strong”? Four authors with four powerful female heroines discuss their leading ladies and how they battle through the various challenges they encounter. There’s the criminal underworld of modern day Chicago and a dangerous love story in the Blood for Blood trilogy by Catherine Doyle, a girl caught in a treacherous web of poison, alchemy and revenge, bound by duty, myth and lies, in the dark and deadly The Sin Eater's Daughter trilogy by Melinda Salisbury, a mixed race girl in 90s Atlanta who discovers a powerful running ability in the midst of tragedy in Wing Jones by Katherine Webber and finally fall in love with Sara Barnard's A Quiet Kind of Thunder as selective mute Steffi finds her voice while finding the person who helps her feel brave enough to use it. From creating worlds and characters to the process of how they write and how they’ve all become friends in the YA writing world, these four fantastic authors are not to be missed!

And to add to the spectacle, in honour of Harry Potter Book Night, our panelists will be dressed to represent their respective Hogwarts houses, and chaired by the Sorting Hat. So please do feel free to join in the day celebrations, and come in your finest wizarding attire!
