THE BAILLIE GIFFORD EVENT
Nikita Gill & Nic Stone: Writing Resistance
Thu 27 Aug 17:30 - 18:30
A profound knack for storytelling has seen Nic Stone become one of the most important voices in young adult fiction, tackling vital themes of race relations, sexuality and self-discovery.
The New York Times bestselling author of Dear Martin appears in conversation with international poetry and social media sensation Nikita Gill to discuss how writing can ignite change and challenge stereotypes. In SLAM: You’re Gonna Wanna Hear This, Gill has collected words from poets who are breaking new ground and making their voices heard, empowering you to do the same.
Both writers have an extraordinary ability to charge their words full of meaning, so prepare for an electric session chaired by poet, author and SLAM contributor Dean Atta, followed by a live Q&A.
This is a live event, with an author Q&A. This event will not be available to watch on demand after the scheduled live broadcast.
Part of our Young, Fierce and Proud festival theme.
