Kwame Alexander, Sarah Crossan & Jason Reynolds: Writing Rhythm
Sun 18 Aug 12:15 - 13:15
Spark Theatre on George Street
Three authors for young adults come together for a lively conversation about verse novels, their growing popularity and how to tell diverse, dynamic stories. Kwame Alexander and Jason Reynolds are CILIP Carnegie Medal-shortlisted authors and Sarah Crossan is the current Irish Children's Laureate. Their stories, with their flowing narrative rhythms inspired by sports, hip hop and other cultural influences, have successfully encouraged reluctant readers to get into books. Join three accomplished authors for this fascinating discussion. In association with CILIP Carnegie and Kate Greenaway Medals.
