Come and meet some of the brilliantly imaginative authors shortlisted for this year’s YA Book Prize as they read from and talk about their – potentially – award-winning books with Caroline Carpenter: Simon James Green, Holly Bourne, Tanya Byrne, Adiba Jaigirdar and Lisa Williamson. A team at The Bookseller magazine, organiser of the Prize, selects the shortlist first, and then the winner is chosen by a panel of expert and teenage judges, who are asked to pick the book they believe is the best-written and that they would be most likely to share with young adults. There are two special events for schools, each featuring a selection of the shortlisted authors. With previous winners including Sarah Crossan’s One, Patrice Lawrence’s Orangeboy and Juno Dawson’s Meat Market – find out who is in with a chance of winning the YA Book Prize this year!
In partnership with The Bookseller
