Malorie Blackman: Noughts & Crosses, 20 Years On

Published twenty years ago this year, Malorie Blackman’s Noughts & Crosses broke the hearts of a generation of teenage readers, and its influence on Young Adult fiction can be felt across the genre with the themes of racism, diversity and conflict still as pertinent in this era of Black Lives Matter as they were when the series was first published. Join the former Children’s Laureate as she reflects on the series and its effects with tv and radio presenter Gemma Cairney, then get a sneaky peak of her eagerly awaited next novel.

This is a live event, with an author Q&A. If buying a ticket to watch the event in-person, the author will take part remotely and you’ll see them on a large screen in the venue.
