Challenging Discrimination with Patrice Lawrence & Jason Reynolds

Two megastars of Young Adult literature come together for a special event for teens and schools, exploring class, the justice system and…knitting? New York Times bestselling author Jason Reynolds introduces his heartfelt urban coming-of-age novel, When I Was the Greatest. He's joined by award-winning writer Patrice Lawrence whose latest teen drama Needle sheds a light on the criminal justice system for young people. What would you do if you found yourself on the wrong side of the law – or the wrong neighbourhood? Discover how these authors help us empathise with their characters and manage to weave warmth and humour into tough narratives. Have your questions ready!
