Friends and Fiends: David Owen, Non Pratt and Sara Barnard in conversation
Friday 25th January 18:30 at London - Piccadilly
David, Non and Sara will be joining us to discuss online culture (the good and the bad), its impact on our sense of self, and how this influences YA , with Grace Latter.
David Owen is the author of two novels, Panther – which was shortlisted for the Carnegie Medal – and The Fallen Children. His latest novel, All the Lonely People is an “original, shocking, eye-opening” and timely story about online culture, exploring the power of kindness and empathy over hatred.
Non Pratt’s first novel, Trouble, received critical acclaim, was shortlisted for the YA Book Prize, the Branford Boase Award, and was longlisted for the Carnegie Medal. Their latest novel, Giant Days, is a story of “what it means to find and define oneself” drawn from John Allison’s comic series.
Sara Barnard is the author of Goodbye, Perfect, A Quiet Kind of Thunder and Beautiful Broken Things, the latter of which was selected for the inaugural Zoella Book Club. Her upcoming novel, Fierce Fragile Hearts (released in February 2019), is an “exquisite” companion novel to Beautiful Broken Things. Both Sara and Non are also two of the authors behind the unique, collaborative novel, Floored.
Grace Latter will be chairing this event. Grace is an obsessive reader, unstoppable blogger, and aspiring author. She writes regularly at almostamazinggrace.co.uk, and is a Young Ambassador with The Brain Tumour Charity.
Please join us for what promises to be a fantastic evening of discussion.
