A Young Storyhouse curated event.

Why does someone choose to write Young Adult (YA) fiction?
How do they decide what to write about?
Why do we read it?
And does YA fiction really reflect our everyday lived experiences?

Come and join the discussion as members of Young Storyhouse chat with Sara Barnard, author of Beautiful Broken Things, A Quiet Kind of Thunder, Goodbye, Perfect (for which she won the YA Book Prize 2019) and Fierce Fragile Hearts; and emerging YA author Ava Eldred.
