SPECIAL YOUNG ADULT EVENT
The story of the women’s suffrage movement is one of astounding bravery, ingenuity and strength. The huge personal sacrifice, and ultimately rebellion, changed society forever.
Join us for this special event celebrating a century since the first women won the right to vote in the UK.
Expect lively discussion, readings and live drawing from Sally Nicholls, author of bestselling young adult novel Things A Bright Girl Can Do, and award-winning illustrator David Roberts, author of Suffragette The Battle for Equality.
This event will be chaired by freelance literary journalist and editor Sarah Shaffi. Sarah writes about books for Stylist Magazine online and is books editor at Phoenix Magazine. Sarah is editor-at-large at independent children's publisher Little Tiger Group. She regularly chairs author events, and is co-founder of BAME in Publishing, a networking group for people of colour in publishing.
A family event suitable for aged 12 and over
