Event HD95

Bookseller YA Book Prize Special Achievement Award

A Change is Gonna Come

Venue: Compass

This year's YA Book Prize Special Achievement Award recognises Stripes Publishing's BAME anthology, A Change is Gonna Come, as one of the most important YA books published last year. Join contributing authors Tanya Byrne, Catherine Johnson and Patrice Lawrence as they discuss their stories, featuring hidden figures of the past, a dystopian warning, and underrepresented contemporary romance. This will be a lively discussion about the book’s call-to-arms to improve inclusivity and the kind of stories readers miss out on if writers of colour are overlooked.
