TCR Presents: Black Girls Book Club, 'Noughts & Crosses'
Thursday 12th March 2020
18:30 - 20:00 at Waterstones, London - Tottenham Court Road
When it was published, Malorie Blackman's Noughts & Crosses series introduced British teenagers to turbulent, magnetic and forbidden love, while engaging with racial inequality in a new and profound way.
Now, 19 years on, Noughts & Crosses hits our screens in a six-part Mammoth Screen adaptation on BBC One. To celebrate its arrival, Melissa Cummings-Quarry and Natalie Carter of Black Girls Book Club will be joined by cast members and series executive producer Preethi Mahavalli, to talk about the six-year journey to bring the ground-breaking book to life on the screen, how the team approached world-building and how the cast and crew worked to make the story relevant to contemporary audiences.
Whether you’ve watched the first episode or you’ve binged the series in one go, you’re a newcomer or you’re a long-term loyal Malorie Blackman fan, we want you to join in the conversation about what Noughts & Crosses means to you.
General admission is priced at £7 and a book-and-ticket option - including the new special edition of Noughts & Crosses, featuring an introduction from Paterson Joseph - priced at £12.
To win free entry and a signed copy of the new edition of Noughts and Crosses, share what the book means to you, by writing ‘Noughts and Crosses matters to me because…’ and tagging @bg_bookclub and #DearMalorie on Twitter. The winner with the most inspiring answer will be chosen by Black Girls Book Club and announced on 8th March.
Black Girls Book Club is a literature and social events platform with a large online community rooted in providing Black women a safe space to connect over their love of books.
