The YA One (Part 5): 23/08/16

Yep, that’s right. Like Backstreet and scrunchies, we’re BACK. On August 23rd,  we’ve got another dreamy line-up of brilliant UKYA authors – there’ll be readings, cocktails and two short stories created on the spot on a theme chosen by the audience. It’s going to be great!

LAURE EVE is the author of Fearsome Dreamer, The Illusionists, and now international smasher, The Graces. She’s also a Speakeasy favourite and when it comes to the Short Story Challenge, she is not to be messed with.

JESS VALLANCE’s debut novel, Birdy, was published last year to great and deserved acclaim. Her second, The Yellow Room, is released this month and sounds ace.

SARRA MANNING is a teen queen extraordinaire. Once a writer and editor at J17, she’s since written about a million great books, for both teenagers and adults, most recently the brilliant London Belongs To Us.

SUE WALLMAN’s debut novel, Lying About Last Summer, was published by Scholastic in May and is already receiving praise from all over the shop. We can’t wait to hear her read from it.

They’ll be there (we’re so excited about that) – we’d love it if you were too. Entry’s free, just email to reserve a table.

Tuesday 23rd August, Drink Shop Do. Doors open at 7, first reading’s at 8 (don’t be late!)
