Here I Stand: Stories that Speak for Freedom
Friday 3rd February 2017
19:00 - 20:30 at Waterstones, London - Piccadilly
Can stories make a difference? With all the uncertainty, the hate, the violence in the world right now, can creating a story, a poem, a piece of art change the world?
Join authors Frances Hardinge, A. L. Kennedy and Sita Brahmachari for a thought-provoking discussion about how to tackle human rights topics for young adult fiction, the issues that teens face trying to understand the world around them, and how you can take a stand and make a difference. Chaired by Amnesty International’s Nicky Parker.
All royalties from the sale of Here I Stand go to Amnesty International, which works to protect human rights all over the world.
