Edinburgh Book Festival

29 Jul

Exciting news! For those of you who didn’t see my announcement on my facebook page, I’m going to be at EDINBURGH BOOK FESTIVAL doing a public panel event with Teri Terry and Julie Bertagna on Dystopian Young Adult fiction. Come! Bring your friends! It’s the biggest book festival in the world and it’s going to be AWESOME!

One event is in the school’s programme and a second event can be found in the public programme, at 6:00 p.m. on 21st August – tickets can be booked here.

Here’s the event blurb:

Dangerous, dark, dystopian… Are stories about the future a thrilling escape from reality or can they inspire change? How far dare writers go as they embrace rebellion and independent thinking? Should there be limits? Should ideas be challenged? Join Demention blog authors, Julie Bertagna (Exodus), Claire Merle (The Fall) and Teri Terry (the Slated triology), for a big dystopian debate.

Hope to see you there!
